Who can delete files and folders? 

Administrators have the ability to delete all files and folders. By default, Editors can only delete their own files or folders. Editors and Standard users can delete other items only if they are given “Edit / admin” access to the relevant folder. 


If you accidentally delete a file or folder, you can use the Undo prompt to immediately restore it. You can also find and restore it via Deleted Items.
