Options for removing recovery points



This article explains new data removal features on the Datto appliance. You can now "Delete All Local" and/or "Delete All Cloud" recovery points from any protected machine. This feature allows users to free up space on a Datto appliance and/or in the Cloud.


To delete the local and/or cloud data for a protected machine, follow these steps:

  1. Log into the web interface for the Datto appliance.
  2. Click on the Protect tab.
  3. You will see a list of Backup Agents. Find the one for which you want to remove data, as shown in Figure 1.

  4. Click on the Manage Recovery Points link for that machine.
