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 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 Dashboard in the top of your Libsyn account to display the Dashboard page.
Find the Monthly Storage section and click Manage to open the File Manager page.
- Click the icon at the top of the Active Files section.
- Select one or more active files to delete. You can filter the list using the icon to search or icon to filter. The icon 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 multiple files:
a. Click the 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.
The file is moved to the Files to Be Deleted section of the File Manager page. You can recover a deleted file within 90 days. See Recover a Deleted File.
You cannot preview, play, or download a deleted media file. If you delete a media file connected to a scheduled or published episode, then the episode is changed to a draft. See Save Your Episode as a Draft to Publish It Later.
