Option to _really_ delete files from the trash bin.

I'd like to have an additional option to really delete a file (or folder) that was deleted.

Currently files can not be deleted but are only put in the trash bin (as in every regular OS – which is actually a good thing). What's missing in my opinion is an option to delete files from the trash bin so that they can't be restored anymore.

I think this feature request here would also also cover Option to disable to restore deleted files – but imho it would be more useful than disabling the "restoring option" (which by itself is a great feature).

The option to delete deleted files "Empty trash bin" is in development and will most likely be released with the update, end of March 2016

 ... any update, maybe now?

I agree that this is an extremely important feature.

Right now, I cannot use my cloud storage anymore because it is (more than) full and I am unable to delete files. So basically, the storage space I am granted is only a maximum upload quota. Once full, it's game over. What kind of feature is that?

Hurry up, team RushFiles!!

We have had this request from several customers, and this have been added as a feature request to the development backlog.

See this as an extremely critical feature. Not being able to delete a file with content designated for 'no-one other than yourself' is a serious issue. 

The right to purge deleted files should not simply be assigned to admins but be an optional right assigned to non-admin users. The feature must not be restricted to purging the entire bin - but must work on share - subfolder - file levels

Please provide the option to the user to delete files permanetly ot even folders. This is due to the fact that not all files are necessary to be stored for a certain period of time. So It would be more effective the user to have option to choose if he wants the files to be restored or not.

You mentioned that this feature "will most likely be released with the update, end of March 2016". 

This really is an important feature. Any update on this?

Hi all,

Thank you everybody for your suggestions and comments.

The right for administrators to purge data directly is now a coming feature as it is believed to be an integral part of the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation.

Great, thanks for the info.

Same here, any update please?

This would be useful if you have any old files which you don't need anymore (e.g. drafts or old files). Plus – if you accidentally put something in the Cloud and want to remove it afterwards (as mentioned in the linked feature request).

I'd also be glad to see this feature implemented.


Glad to hear. Thank you.

Hi all

A little update:

We changed a few things, so now the data is stored 120 days (60 days for you to restore + 60 days where the files still can be restored by us)

After 120 days the amount of data will decrease so you will free up storage. 

We are currently working on a option for the administrator to delete the files immediately.
