ownCloud: Deleting Files

To delete a file, click on the x on the right side of the screen when you hover your mouse over the filename.Delete Button

After you delete the file, it is placed in your ownCloud Recycle Bin in case you need them again. These deleted files will contribute towards your quota (even if the quota message suggests otherwise). Once the files in the Recycle Bin exceed 50% of your quota, the system will start to delete files from this section, starting with the oldest files first. To manage your storage more effectively, you may wish to permanently delete some items from your Recycle Bin to ensure that other files will not be deleted automatically.

  1. Access your ownCloud Recycle Bin by clicking on the Deleted files button on the right side of the screen.Deleted files
  2. Hover your mouse over the file you want to permanently delete, and click the x that appears on the right.Delete Permanently
  3. The file will instantly, and permanently, be deleted.

  2. Locate the file you wish to un-delete, and click on the Restore button to the right of the filename.Restore button
