Remove-WBCatalog

Removes the backup catalog from the local computer.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Remove-WBCatalog [[-Force]] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-WBCatalog cmdlet removes the backup catalog from the local computer. Use this cmdlet when the backup catalog is corrupted and you cannot restore it by using the Restore-WBCatalog cmdlet.

If you remove the backup catalog for a computer, you cannot access the backups of that computer by using Windows Server® 2012 Backup. In this case, if you can access another backup location, use Restore-WBCatalog to restore the backup catalog from that location, and then create a new backup from that backup catalog.
