4.4.3 Deleting and Restoring Content Items

If you don't need a content anymore you can either remove it from the website and keep it in your repository or delete it from the repository. If you want to delete a content item from the website, you have to withdraw it first. For details on withdrawal see Section, “Withdrawing Content”.

A deleted file is moved into the CoreMedia recycle bin. Usually, the recycle bin is cleaned on a regular basis. As long as the recycle bin has not been cleaned, you can restore a deleted file.
