  • Delete a Workspace file

About this task

  • Workspace owners can delete any files on their Workspaces.
  • Workspace editors can only delete files they have added.
  • Any files deleted from a Workspace will remain in the trash bin for 30 days (during which time, you can restore them to the Workspace). After 30 days, the files are purged and are unrecoverable.
  • If you delete a file, both the current version and all previous versions of the file are removed. You cannot delete only a previous version of the file.
