    Admins,

    Can someone please tell me how I can delete files that I've attached to previous threads? In the thread below, I uploaded a file multiple times as we had new versions of it. :eek:

    In doing so, I exhausted my allotment of uploadable files and I've not been able to upload things since then.

    I'd like to delete all of the attachments in that thread so I can upload again?

    Please advise and thanks!

    Greg

    Depends on what rights the admins have granted users. I haven't uploaded photos, so I cant check the rights to see if it is possible.

    But you can either:
    Edit your post and scroll down and look for a remove attachment option.

    If that isn't available, then you need to have the admins delete the attachments. :)

    Try this. I'm not sure if works for me thanks to my admin status, or if anybody can do it. Also don't know if you can do it beyond the 48-hour post editing limit.

    While viewing your message:

    Edit
    Go Advanced
    (Scroll down)
    Manage Attachments

    Notes:
    1. Uploading attachments is a perk reserved for TUG members
    2. The system limits any individual's uploads to 500,000 bytes.

    If this were my project, I'd just upload the file to a file server and post a link to it. When the file is updated, just upload a new copy with the same file name, overwriting the old one, and the old link will then fetch the current file. My ISP account provides server space I could use for this, and a web search for free file hosting will show you other server options.

    Doug, 'Edit' is not an option after 48 hours.
