I have a lot of deleted files and I want to permanently delete them in one go
Please Help...

File file selection is now available, and this is very difficult for many files

Hi there @Afsch, thanks for reaching out!

 

While there isn't currently an option to select all the files in the Deleted files page, I could suggest a workaround to help delete the files in bulk.

 

You can select the first file in the list with the checkbox to the left of the file name, and then scroll down towards the bottom of the files list. While holding the "Shift" key on your keyboard, select the last file in the list.

 

This should select all the files for you, so that you delete the files in bulk.

 

I know it's not exactly what you were looking for, but let me know if this helps!
