You can delete database backups to reduce backup space costs.
Manual backups can be deleted from the backup list in the console, but automatic backups cannot be manually deleted.
- Log in to the TencentDB for MySQL console. In the instance list, click an instance ID/name or Manage in the "Operation" column to access the instance’s management page.
- On the Backup and Restore tab, locate the backup you want to delete in the backup list, and click Delete in the "Operation" column.
- In the pop-up dialog box, confirm that all information is correct and click OK.
Once deleted, backups cannot be recovered.
