How do I remove a listing for an attachment in the Space Attachment List that has been deleted from it's page?

I have deleted an attachment from it's page, and it is no longer listed on that page, but it is still showing on the Space Tools > Content Tools > Attachments without an option to delete it. I click on the attachment and I receive a page not found error.

None of the attachments in the Space Attachment List have a delete link as mentioned in the documentation.  I have Space Admin rights with permissions to delete attachments.

Hi Christopher,

Although the attachment has been deleted from the page and from the attachments page, it sits in the Trash until the trash is purged (or until the individual item is purged).  I'm not sure if it's intended functionality, but I've found that (occasionally, not always) an attachment will still be listed until it's been purged from the Trash.  So try purging just that attachment from the Trash and see if it disappears from the attachments page.
