Deleting old backups after switching backup type

Post by edgecity » September 10th, 2019, 9:27 pm

I changed a backup job from incremental to compressed. I'd like to delete the incremental backup which is in a different folder. Can I do that in JetBackup? Or can I just delete the files in S3 and the backup will also disappear in JetBackup?
thanks.

Hi edgecity,

We generally recommend to let your Backup Job run through the number of retention you have
set to naturally build up a new set of compressed backups and automatically flush out/delete your old incremental backups. With that said, you can delete your incremental backups manually in your destination then run jetcli backup -vfR reindex to sync JetBackup to changes made on your destination.

Regards,
