SIRIS, ALTO, and NAS: Remove Agent



This article explains how to remove an agent from a SIRIS or ALTO device.

NOTE: You will not see this option for replicated agents on a target SIRIS in a SIRIS Private configuration; you must remove the agent from the source SIRIS.


  • Datto SIRIS
  • Datto ALTO


1. In the Datto appliance GUI, click the Protect tab. You will see a list of machines that the device is protecting.

2. Find the agent that you wish to remove, and click the Remove Agent link.

4. In the box provided on the Permanently Remove Agent page, type delete my local and replicated data, and then click the Delete button.

Once you click the Delete button, all data will be deleted locally and offsite. Do not use this option if you need to retain the Cloud backups for the agent. Instead, go to Manage Recovery Points to delete the local recovery points.

5. When the agent has been completely removed, the Protect page will be displayed.
