10.6 Making Disk Space Available by Purging Deleted Items

Files that have been deleted but not yet purged still count toward your data quota. Folders that do not contain files do not count toward your data quota. If you have reached your allotted data quota, you need to purge deleted files.

You can purge any item that you have rights to delete.

IMPORTANT:Purged items cannot be recovered. When you purge items from the Filr site, remember the following:

  • Purging a file also purges all comments and replies.

  • Purging a folder also purges all files and subfolders that are associated with that folder.

  1. Navigate to the folder where the deleted item that you now want to purge previously resided.

    For example, if you want to purge a file that was in your My Files area, navigate to the appropriate folder in your My Files area.

  2. Click the Trash icon Username drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the page.

    The Trash page displays all folders and files that have been deleted in or below the current folder.

  3. Select the item that you want to purge.

  4. Click Purge > Yes.

    The item is purged from the Filr site.
