You will then be directed back to the File Storage area where you will see that the file has been removed.

If you click on the Download icon at the end of the row of the file you would like to delete, you will also see the Delete icon on this screen too.

Warning: If you delete a file from File Storage, it will also be deleted from any email templates it might be attached to.

Did you know? You can see files that other users on your site have uploaded to File Storage by unticking the ‘Show my files only’ checkbox at the top of the page.

NOTE: Site Administrators can delete all files in File Storage, including those uploaded by other users. However, users with the Privileged, Regular or Restricted roles can only delete files that they have uploaded. They will NOT see the Trashcan icon for files they did not upload, as they cannot delete other users' files from File Storage.
