Manualy remove files from backup

i did make a mistake and i backuped the wrong path
my backup now is unnecessary great
can i remove the wrong path form my backup set or do i have to wait for the retention time

Maybe this post helps:

If the unwanted files are in the latest backup version only, you can delete that backup version as suggested by @tophee with the delete command.

If you want to remove a file or folder from all backup versions, use the purge command:

Usage: purge <storage-URL> <filenames> [<options>]

 Purges (removes) files from remote backup data. This command can either take a list of filenames or use the filters
 to choose which files to purge. The purge process creates new filesets on the remote destination with the purged
 files removed, and will start the compacting process after a purge. By default, the matching files are purged in
 all versions, but this can be limited by choosing one or more versions. To test what will happen, use the --dry-run

   Performs the operation, but does not write changes to the local database or the remote storage
   Selects specific versions to purge from, multiple versions can be specified with commas
   Selects a specific version to purge from
   Performs a compact process after purging files
   Selects files to purge, using filter syntax

Thx it worked with delete command
