Delete a Backup

You can delete an existing backup of an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance.

You might want to delete a backup for the following reasons:

  • The backup is no longer needed.

  • To prevent users from restoring the service instance from this backup

  • To free up storage space

  1. Access your service console.
  2. Click the name of the service instance for which you want to manage backups.
  3. On the Overview page, click the Administration tile.
  4. Click the Backup tab.
  5. Under Available Backups, beside the backup that you want to delete, click Menu Menu icon, and then select Delete.
  6. If you selected a full backup that is linked to one or more incremental backups, select the check box to confirm that both the full and incremental backups will be deleted.
  7. Click Delete.
