Browser for kept Backups with no current job


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I am in need of cleaning up the storage, which I am backing up VMs to.
There are lots of VMs, that are no longer in backup jobs but used to be and, when removed from the jobs, the option "Remove VM and keep backup" was chosen so we could have the backup available for another 6 months in case anything went wrong. Now for many of these backups the 6 months (and much more) are over, but I can't find any view, that would show me all the backups, that are no longer in a backup job.

Do I really have to click on each and every (~200) VM to see when their last backup happened? Or is there a possibility to list all VMs with their latest backup?
The thing I found to be closest to what I need, is the "Overview Report" I can get from the "Create" drop-down menu. I would like that information but in a table/list and, if possible, additionally with the information, whether they are currently part of a configured backup job or not.


Many thanks in advance and happy holidays.

Thanks a lot to both of you.

That is pretty much what i need.
Just wish that last step (7) of "Deleting Backups in Bulk" had checkboxes next to the VMs, that are listed, so only a sub-selection of the already filtered VMs could be deleted (as I might want to keep some of the backups older than 6 months but keep others).
But that's more of a feature request than anything else. (example draft attached)
Got the list now and can use it to manually delete the backups that I want to from the repositories. So for me the question is answered.

Thanks again.
