Delete and restore files and folders in a Team Folder

Delete and restore files and folders in a Team Folder

Weed out unwanted files and folders in your Team Folder by deleting them. If you make a mistake, though, you can restore them instantly. You'll never have to worry about accidentally deleting an important file again!

To delete a file or folder:
Select a file or folder and click the delete icon  on the top actions bar. Alternatively, you can right-click the file or folder and select Move to Trash.



  1. Only Admins and Organizers can move files and folders to the respective Team Folder's Trash.

  2. Trashing files and folders that are shared with other team members will remove the files and folders for them, as well.

To restore a file or folder:

1. Navigate to the left pane and click your Team Folder to open it on the right.
2. Click the dropdown arrow next to the name of your Team Folder in the top-left corner.



3. Select Trash from the dropdown. The Trash tab will open.
4. Select the file or folder you want to restore and click the restore icon  at the top of the trash list. Alternatively, hover over the file or folder and click the restore icon  to restore.



  1. Both Admins and Organizers can restore deleted files and folders from a Team Folder's Trash.

  2. Only Admins can delete files and folders from a Team Folder's Trash.
    As an extra layer of data security, once items in the Trash are deleted, they will be temporarily moved to Deleted Items in the Admin Console.
