Removing SBS Backup details in the management console

I would like to know if it is possible to clear the backup details from previous backups listed under Server Management > Backup. I can wait for a few successful backups to overwrite the failed ones but I was wondering if there was a way I could do it immediately.

I know:
- Log files are located in 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Support\Backup Logs\...' (Deleting them does nothing)
- Backup IIS folder is located in 'C:\inetpub\backup'. (There was nothing in there that I saw that could be worked with beside possibly some dll files under the 'bin' folder.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Hiya,

The XML report Backup Results.xml (located in %sbsprogramdir%\Backup\)is
used by the Server Management Backup snap-in. The report provides the
backup status, date and time of the backup, and a link to view the backup
log.

To clear the all Backup Details, you can simply rename (delete) the Backup
Results.xml file. If you want to clear specific backup result entry, you
can edit the XML file with the notepad to manually delete the following
node:


LogFile="<sbsbackuplog location>" />

Then save it and refresh the Server Management to check how it works.

Hope this helps!
