Is it possible to manually remove the very old catalog file on Backup Exec 2010 R2 ?

I don't want to use the "Truncate Catalog" under Tools -> Options -> Catalog and I want to select which catalog should keep or not.

Tks

Hi AXISHK,

Stop all Backup EXec services.
Go to the Catalogs folder.
Arrange the files according to the Date modified.
Then you can manually delete the files up to the date from where you want to keep your restore data.

Well the above mentioned method is not recommended as the backup exec database is in sync with the catalogs and deleting the catalogs manually will not remove the entries from the database and it might also lead to corruption in the backup exec database .

So if you are looking for a space issue on C drive then we have other options to change the catalog location to different drive.
