To delete files in Drupal, you can use the following steps:

  1. Log in to your Drupal site as an administrator.
  2. Go to the "Content" section in the dashboard and click on the "Files" tab.
  3. Locate the file you want to delete and click on its name to view the file's details.
  4. Click on the "Delete" button at the bottom of the page.
  5. Confirm that you want to delete the file by clicking on the "Delete" button in the pop-up window.


Alternatively, you can delete files by accessing the files directory on your Drupal site's server. This method is only recommended for users with advanced technical skills, as you will need to navigate the file system using a tool such as SFTP or FTP.


Keep in mind that deleting a file in Drupal will also remove any references to that file in your content. If you are using the file in multiple places on your site, you will need to update those references to avoid broken links.

To delete files in Drupal, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Drupal administration panel using your administrator credentials.
  2. Go to the "Content" section in the administration menu.
  3. Select the type of content that contains the file you want to delete (e.g., Article, Basic page, etc.).
  4. Find the content containing the file you want to delete and click on its title to open the editing page.
  5. Look for the file field on the editing page. This is where the file is attached to the content.
  6. Click on the "Remove" or "Delete" button next to the file field.
  7. Confirm the file deletion by clicking "Delete" in the confirmation prompt. The file will now be removed from the content and deleted from the server.


Note: If the file is used in multiple places on your website, deleting it will also remove it from other content where it is attached. Therefore, consider if any other content relies on the file before deleting it.


Remember to clear the Drupal cache after deleting files to ensure the changes take effect immediately.
