Delete Command (File Menu)

Command Remarks

Removes files or projects from the repository, and marks them as deleted. Checked-out or pinned items cannot be deleted.

There are two levels of deletion in Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted: Delete and Destroy Permanently.

After an item is deleted in Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted, it still exists in the repository and can be recovered or purged from Project Properties->Deleted Items Tab. Destroyed permanently items cannot be recovered.

If an item is shared across two projects, the Delete and Destroy Permanently commands will only remove the item from within the currently selected project.

Access Rights

You must have the Delete access right to use this command.
