Clearing Duplicati backups

I you’ve run out of destination or drive storage space and need to delete older versions of your Duplicati2 backup then the following command will be helpful:


.\duplicati.commandline.exe delete “file://\\\ServerBackup/” –keep-versions=1 –passphrase=yourpassphrasehere –dbpath=”C:\Users\administrator\AppData\Roaming\Duplicati\QYHDYVWMQL.sqlite

Replace the items in bold with the things specific to your needs.

To find your database location go into the normal Duplicati interface. Click the drop down on the backup you need to clean, click on “Database…”  then copy what is shown in the “Local database path” box.
