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