13.9 Making Disk Space Available by Purging Deleted Items

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

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

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

  • Purging an entry also purges all attached files, comments, and replies.

  • Purging a folder also purges all entries and sub-folders that are associated with that folder.

  • Purging a workspace also purges all folders, sub-folders, and entries that are associated with that workspace.

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

    For example, if you want to purge a file entry that was in your personal Files folder, navigate to the Files folder in your personal workspace.

    If you want to see everything that has been deleted in the Vibe site, navigate to the highest level workspace. (By default this is the Home Workspace directory.)

  2. Click the Trash icon , located in the Navigation panel.

    The Trash page displays all workspaces, folders, and entries that have been deleted in or below the current workspace or folder.

  3. Select the file entry or any other type of entry that contains an attachment that you want to purge.

  4. Click Purge > OK.

    The item is purged from the Vibe site.
