Article Summary

Your deleted files are retained for a retention period that is defined by your CTERA Portal’s administrator. If you have deleted a file by accident, you can view and restore it.

After an amount of time configured by the administrator, but not less than 30 days, the file is permanently deleted.

Note

Searching for a deleted file, when deleted files are shown, does not return any results.

To show deleted items:
