Delete Large File
 

In moodle 2.3.1, is it possible to truly delete a large video file.  Given the common resource file structure, I am worried that once I upload it, I may not be able to remove it through my course.  For example, if I delete it, am I really deleting it from the website or am I just breaking the link between my class and a now permanent file on the server.

Can anyone provide me any insight here.

Is there somewhere else in the forums I should place this post?

Hi Curt,

As far as I know, if you upload a file and then delete the file resource, as long as the file is not used elsewhere, it will be deleted from the server as part of a cleanup procedure.

The trash collection in regular moodle takes place after 4 days.
