NAME

       restic-forget - Remove snapshots from the repository

SYNOPSIS

       restic forget [flags] [snapshot ID] [...]

DESCRIPTION

       The "forget" command removes snapshots according to a policy. Please note that this
       command really only deletes the snapshot object in the repository, which is a reference to
       data stored there. In order to remove this (now unreferenced) data after 'forget' was run
       successfully, see the 'prune' command.
