how is it possible i can still preview a deleted file from an old stored link

on a page, a link was shared to a attached excel file. Now the info in the excel is invalid, and is deleted. Still my collegue uses the link and it shows the deleted file. 

File was removed form both the page, and not availible in the attachement overview, firs we tought it accesses an older version of the page, we deleted these, so only one version of the page remains. Still the link works and opens a preview of the old excel file. 

Anyone has a clue? i cant seem to get rid of this data

URL shows pageID=xxx&preview=%xxxxxxx%xxxxxxxx%filename.xlsx

Hi @Paul Wijnen 

this is pretty interesting. Which version of server are you running?

Did you empty the trash of space permanently as mentioned here? Seems impossible that it's still shown but who knows. 

Hope this may help!

that did the trick, thanks, interesting, and in some use cases dangerous that hard copied URL still show the deleted data.

Yeah that's absolutely right! 

Thanks for accepting the answer - hope this can also help other people who stumble across the same problem. I remember that we had this last year with a list that got in the wrong space....
