How to delete attachments uploaded by deleted user

I do not get the option to delete attachments that is uploaded by a deleted user. My own attached items gives me the option. 

I am the admin, so the problem should not be connected with permission.. 

How do I solve this?

Hi @Catti Rosengren ,

You need to have "Delete All attachments" permission on your project. Being a project admin does not always ensure that you have all permissions to the project. Kindly check your permission scheme

I actually had the "delete all attachments" permission on the project. However I found the error ! 

My account is both in a group called "admins" and "users", and the permission for delete attachments was only on for "admins". So it would seem that I "fall back" in the "user permission" when trying to edit a document. Changed the permissions specifically for my user and now it works :D 

Good that you are able to get that working. Kindly mark the question as answered, so that this would be marked as solved. thanks
