Database Backup:Delete a backup set

Last Updated:Dec 28, 2023

Each time DBS performs a backup, a backup set is generated. This topic describes how to manually delete a backup set.


The backup schedule must contain more than three full backup sets.


Otherwise, no backup sets can be deleted.


  • You can only delete a single backup set at a time. The batch delete operation is not supported.

  • Incremental backup sets cannot be deleted.

  • To ensure the continuity of the restored data, you can delete only the earliest backup set in an operation.


You cannot recover a deleted data backup set. Proceed with caution when you perform this operation.

Configure the backup schedule

  1. Log on to the Database Backup (DBS) console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Backup Schedules. In the top navigation bar, select a region.

  3. Click the name of the backup schedule that you want to manage. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Backup Tasks > Full Data Backup.

  4. Find the backup set and then click Delete Backup Set.

  5. In the message that appears, click OK.
