    How to delete old attachments

    Does anyone know how to delete attachments on the manage attachments menu? I would like to get rid of some.

    You could create inconvenience to those who come to the forum about a problem and then the attachment is missing

    Not all posts deal with machine issues.

    Interesting question. On my phone seems you can't. Don't have PC handy to try.
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    From what I have been told in the past, once an attachment is added to a post, you have to delete the post first. That can only be done within a set time after you post, might be 24 hours or less. After that you will need to get a list of those old attachments you want deleted to the admin. Bear in mind that as Bix noted it will affect anyone viewing the post(s).
