Can't delte junk files.

HI, I have asked this question before....I need a methhod to delet junk files.

 

At the current time the biggest folder in my account is the Trash folder because I can't delete anything out

of it.

 

As an example I, a few minutes ago, I broke the link to a PCB in the Electronics Design folder that I might

make a new PCB. Depsite the link being formally broken I cannot delete the file by virtue of a link???

I swept it to the Trash Folder....yet another one.

 

Would someone please devise a means of either breaking or indentifying the links to other files.

 

This is really starting to piss me off....I can't control my own work.

Have you checked the version details in the Data Panel? It should give you tabs like "Uses" and "Used In" to show what files it has been linked with.

Hi,
Yes, I have multiple times.

I have a file called BLDC1, a PCB file, in my Trash folder. I have inspected its 'uses'....it has none. Likewise, I have inspected
it's 'Used In' and it not used in any other file. When I try to delete it however Fusion refuses on the basis that its used in other designs.
Give me a break......I just checked it......

This is pretty annoying you're right, I'm also using a 'Trash folder'. Of the files in there, I seem to have two that are linked to each other.. somehow, and I can't delete either because it's dependant on the other. I also can't seem to find a way to break the link, so now I've got a growing trash folder.. 

 

I wonder how much space is taken up on F360's servers with trash.

Hi @zigzag2015,

I hear you, even if a file isn't used in any other design once it's been saved a few times and has a few revisions, these revisions reference each other internally. That's the reason it won't let you delete the file even if it's not referenced by anything else.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Hi @zigzag2015 ,

 

If I had a solution for it, you would have it already. This is something endemic to Fusion's cloud structure and as far as I know there is no way around it currently.

 

Wish I had better news.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,
