Is there any way to remove a cloud backup?

Is it possible to delete a cloud backup from the Local dashboard?
There is no documentation on this topic, and I think it is quite necessary to clarify what is the procedure for deleting a cloud backup.
I have read in some posts that deleting the copy directly from the Google Drive or Dropbox folder causes problems. Why not a right click “delete” option?
Thank you!

Hi there @mafsdisseny! :wave:

Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention. I believe Local will still retain a link to the deleted files unless you disconnect and reconnect your Cloud Backup provider.

That said, I’m going to move this into the “Feature Request” category and let the Local engineering team know.

We appreciate you!


Glad to see it’s being looked into. It’s a little strange to not be able to delete a backup.
