How to selectively delete backed-up data on Ahsay v6 and v7


#1

If you have deleted a lot of data from your source device and want to remove it from our service, there are 2 ways to ensure it is selectively deleted whilst other data is retained.

After you delete some data from your device, the next backup will sense this and move the associated backed-up data to the retention area. The data in the retention area will be purged from our service in line with your retention settings. These are set in daily increments and the default setting is 5 years (1825 days).

You can change the retention period in your portal or in our software on your device.

  1. If your retention settings are set quite low (i.e. 7 days), you could allow our service to purge your data in line with your retention settings.

  2. If you need to maintain a longer retention period for your other backed-up data and reducing the retention period isn’t an option, you can selectively delete the backed-up data from our service.

Using version 6
If you are using v6, this video shows how to remove backed-up data from our service - https://www.screencast.com/t/gzttqRuoT

Using version v7
If you are using v7, you can remove backed-up data from our service by using the software on your device. Go into Utilities \ Delete Backup Data.

If you want to delete only some of the backed-up data, select the respective backup job and backup destination.

Select the folders you want to remove and click Delete.

This data will be purged immediately from the destination and cannot be recovered.
