Delete file from Space

Hello everybody,

there are few files that are uploaded to the Space and now I cannot delete them

The Space Tools->Content Tools->Attachments shows them, but the Page->Attachment list doesn't show them, so I can't delete them.

Space Attachments:

The Page Attachment (the page is the same as shown in the Space Attachments Page):

So, how can I delete them?

Best Regards, Todor.


Hi @Todor Plachkov - it looks like the attachments are part of a file list on the page. Did you try to search for attachment by name in whole system? Maybe it was linked from some other space. 

Who is it shown in the file list?


when I type the file in the Search field, the only place that it emerges is in this page.

The problem is that the Space Attachments shows the file is in the Page, but when I open the Page, it is not showing these two files in the attachments list.

Hi - but is it shown on the page itself? Pretty strange.... Did you have a look in the Space Tools -> Content Tools -> Trash? Maybe it was already deleted but not finally yet so that it's still ghosting around in space attachments. 

The files are not in the Trash also :)

I can download the files from the Space Tools->Content Tools->Attachments, but I cannot delete them, because the only "Delete" button is in the Page Attachment list or the attachment macro, but the files are missing there :)


just a guess: Did you try rebuilding the search index? 

Pretty good guess thanks to @JP _AC Bielefeld Leader_ - you should definitly try this @Todor Plachkov -> have a look on the documentation.

Thank you for your suggestions. 

I've just rebuild the Search Index, but the files are still presented in the Space attachments.

BUT, judging from their names they are part of the Scroll Office templates, because their names starts with SCRLL__...

I will try to remove them from this Add on.
