Asset Deletion


To delete an asset, click the Delete option on the toolbar.


The trashbin provides a list of all assets that have been deleted in Dalet Flex. When an asset is deleted in Dalet Flex it is first moved to a designated “Trash” folder resource via the execution of a delete job. The asset is also marked as deleted. As with all object types in Dalet Flex, a deleted asset is not removed from the underlying datastore, it is simply flagged as deleted. The reason for this is that its important to know what was deleted previously for auditing purposes.

The trashbin serves as a place to store old assets until you decide whether to purge them or restore them back to their original state. Once an asset has been deleted or purged, its fields cannot be edited. If you restore an asset (via a restore job) then the fields can be edited again.

There are two related states that apply to assets. They are deleted and purged. Purged assets are not displayed in the trashbin.

You can view the quantity of deleted assets that are in the trashbin from the Navigation panel:
