Retire Backups is a helpful feature for when you no longer need a backup (for example, when a customer moves on or you retire a device).

Once your backup has been retired successfully, you can find it in your Manage > Retired Backups screen. It will no longer display in the Dashboard, Audit, or Active Reports screens. Results will continue to parse and history will be saved.
