How to delete permanently at the same time all the deleted files on the Web Version of Dropbox? There is no box to check in order to select all the deleted files together, so it looks you must delete them one by one... Any tips for that? Looked into the past discussions but did not fin anything helpful... Thanks in advance 😊

There is no "Select All" option but you can select each files file one at a time, and then click Permanently Delete located on the right side of the page.

Thanks a lot 😀  It's quite weird anyway that there is no similiar funcition... It would be easily solved adding a checkbox with "select all"...... For those like me who just use Dropbox from the Web can be a bit annoying to delete the files one by one (or to wait 30 days until they get permanently deleted by themselves)

In normal operation there's no need to permanently delete files, so it's more likely "a nice to have that really isn't necessary."

Need more support?
