Permanently delet files from Deleted files folder

Permanently delet files from Deleted files folder

Explorer | Level 3

I don’t se an option to permanently delete all files from deleted files folder.
How can I purge them all at once.
I got a message that some files cannot be deleted and ask the administrator. But I’m the only user and I don’t have a shared folder.

Hi @errocha, thanks for posting today!

 

It should be possible to select multiple deletions to permanently delete them from the deleted files page.

 

If this isn't possible, perhaps there is an issue with a specific file or folder that can't be permanently deleted. Could there be a shared folder that was deleted from your account, but still able to add it back from here?

 

Keep me posted!

Hello - I had so many folders on my dropbox and 90% have disappeared. I am worried about being hacked. Can you help me.

Hi Jay

 

Thank you for your response, I am having the same issue. So far I cannot see how your answer "it should be possible" answers the question "How can I purge them all at once"?

 

Can you be a little bit more specific?

Hi @NS0891, you can select multiple deletions from the deleted files page to delete them in bulk. Currently, there isn't a method to delete all the events in one go.

 

@cc2020090, are you able to restore any of your files and folders from the deleted files page? Do you see the deletions on the events page?
