Hi folks,

Can you please help me on How to remove/delete vertica backups?.

Using vertica vertion 9.

We are seeing the Filesystem in getting filled due large files of vertica backup, hence want to remove the backup in a safe way.

    You can delete one of the old snapshot by using the vbr script.
    /opt/vertica/bin/vbr -t remove --archive 20180209_203008 -c /path/configuration_file.ini

    20180209_203008 last backup date which is part of backup name.
