If you uploaded a file to Libsyn that's cutting into your monthly storage quota, you can delete it to free up space if you need more this month. For example, if you want to publish more episodes than usual this month, but you've almost hit your monthly limit, you can delete an active file that you don't need so you can free up some space for your new content.
If you delete a file, it will no longer be available in Libsyn. If you don't want to delete any files, there is an alternative for freeing up space in your monthly quota: you can archive episodes early. For more information about early archiving, see Free up Monthly Storage Space with Early Archiving. For more information about how your storage works and the difference between active and archived files, see Understand How Your Monthly Storage Works.
To delete files:
- Click the icon on the left. The File Manager table opens.
- Select one or more active files to delete. You can filter the list using the Search field or Filter button. The Filter button can be used to display only Active content. See Understand How Your Monthly Storage Works.
The items with a status of Active are the ones that are actively counting toward your monthly storage quota. Deleting a file with a status of Archived won't free up any space.
To select a single file, click the in the row for the file and select Delete from the menu.
To select multiple files:
a. Click the Select button. b. Select the checkbox for one or more active files. (The checkbox in the header selects or deselects all the checkboxes at once.). c. Click the Delete button.
- In the window that opens, click Delete to confirm.
