Delete a Snapshot

On this page

  • Procedure

To delete snapshots for replica sets and sharded clusters, use the Ops Manager console to find then select a backup snapshot to delete.

Important

Affects next backup and point-in-time restores

  • The next backup job runs as a full backup rather than an incremental backup.

  • Point-in-time restores apply oplog entries to the last snapshot taken before the specified point. Deleting a snapshot removes the base snapshot for a PIT restore.
