Delete a Snapshot

On this page

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

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.



Click Continuous Backup, then the Overview tab.


On the line listing the process, click the ellipsis icon and click View All Snapshots.


Select backup file to delete.

On the list of snapshots, click the Delete link to the right of a snapshot.


Confirm deletion.

Click the OK button on the Delete Snapshot interface to confirm deletion of the backup.
