Delete Images or Attachments - Recover Space - classic Google Sites

How to add the Steegle.com Facebook Like Button Gadget to your Google Site. This gadget can auto-detect the page's URL so you don't need to add it, so you can add to a page template and it will work without further configuration.

For new Google Sites there is no quota for image size and files are stored in Google Drive (see that quota instead). Google has imposed a 1,000 page limit and 200,000 character limit per page and an overall 10 million character limit per new Google Site - see Files you can store in Google Drive.

Instructions

Delete Files Temporarily (soft delete)

  1. Sign in to your Google Site
  2. Use the More button (looks like a gear/cog) and then Manage Site(or keyboard shortcut g then m) and go to Attachments.
  3. You will see a list of all the images, files and attachments available on your Google Site: find the file or files you wish to delete and check the checkbox on the left of the file(s).
  4. Use the Delete button at the top of the page and the files will disappear from the list.

You can recover images, files and attachments deleted in this manner for 30 days (then they get deleted automatically) and whilst they remain temporarily deleted they still use space on your site.

Delete Files Permanently (hard delete)
