Delete folders

Users can delete folders from an AODocs library (if they have permission). 

When a user deletes a folder:

  • it goes to the AODocs library trash
  • the folder and its content stays in the library trash for the defined library retention period and is then permanently deleted

During the retention period, library administrators can:

  • permanently delete the folder and its content
  • restore the folder and its content

To delete a folder:

1. In an AODocs view select a folder.

2. In the toolbar, select the trash button.


3. A confirmation message opens. Press Delete.


 As a contributor, you can only delete content that you can edit. For example, if you delete a folder containing read-only documents and edit-access documents, only the edit-access documents are sent to the library trash. The folder and the read-only documents it contains aren't deleted.
 Administrators can restore deleted folders and documents. Learn more: Manage deleted documents and folders.
