Delete folders

In the AODocs user interface, it is possible to delete a folder when you have the permission to edit it.

To delete a folder, access an AODocs document list and select a folder (1). In the AODocs toolbar, click the trash button (2).

Deleting a folder

A pop-up appears to inform you that the selected items will be deleted. Administrators can restore the deleted documents (see limitations below).

Validate the deletion by clicking "Delete" (3) or cancel it (4).

Validating the folder deletion


  • As a contributor, you can only delete content you have edit access on. For example, if a contributor deletes the folder "F" filled with read-only documents and edit-access documents, only the edit-access documents are sent to the library trash. The folder "F" and the read-only documents it contains will not be deleted.
  • It is not possible to restore a folder, only the individual documents it contains.
