Deleting Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to delete a backup that was made. I successfully deleted one backup out of the two that I have. The other will not delete. When I got under Backup tab and click cleanup it run the cleanup but doesn't remove the backup. I have turn off auto backup on both pc and I tried delete it from the host pc. Is there any other way to delete this backup? Thanks

  • If it's the only backup left for that pc (you want to delete all backups for that pc) please try:

    1. Open WHS console, Computers and Backup tab
    2. Right click the pc, select Remove.
    3. Run backup cleanup from the WHS console, Settings, Backup
    4. If you want to connect the client again run discovery.exe from C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server.
