Deleting a File
May 10, 2011
Before you delete the file, please consider whether simply replacing the file might accomplish your goal. Deleting a file permanently removes it from the system and breaks all links to the file. In many cases, a better solution would be to replace the file with a new or different version. For example, if you need to post a new version of the same document each year, don’t delete it, replace it. By handling files this way, links don’t ever change and you’re able to distribute the most up-to-date version of the file with very little fuss. To learn more, read “Editing an existing file.”
If you are certain you need to delete the file, follow these steps:
- From the LiveWhale interface, click the “Files” link.
- Find the file (or files) you wish to delete in the list and check the box next to it.
- Choose “Delete” from the dropdown menu, and click “Go”. Note: The selected item(s) will be removed from the system. This action cannot be undone!
You may also delete the item from the file edit screen:
- From the files manager, find the file you wish to delete and click it.
- Click the “Delete” link on the right side of the screen. You will be prompted to confirm this action.
