Here’s a quick way to delete the Jobs and Alert events that show up in the Windows Azure Backup.

First make sure you don’t need the JOB history first !  :)

Go to Event Viewer and select Applications and Services Logs

image

 

Open up the CloudBackup Operational log and delete the events, there are 5 that are created for each recovery point created in Windows Azure.

It first checks the “Installed version of Windows Azure Backup Agent is the latest”

image

it then checks “The backup operation has started”

image

It then checks “Storage quota in within limits”

image

It then checks again “Storage quota is within limits”

image

then finally “The backup operation has completed.”

image

You can then go to the right to Clear Log

image

You will decide to Save and Clear or just Clear.

image

The events are cleared

image

You will see that the Jobs are cleared. You also see that there are still a total of 3 backups for this item listed.

The same 3 you see in the Windows Azure Recovery Services Backup Vault

To recover the backed up items, go to Recover Data and start the wizard
