Archive Files

While a file cannot be deleted from a 3Play Media project they can however be archived. Archiving a file acts as a soft delete as the file can be made available again by unarchiving it later (see step 3).

When all files within a folder are archived, the folder is removed from the project by default. When one file associated with the previously removed folder is unarchived the original folder is unarchived as well.

IMPORTANT: Please note that any archived files associated with an interactive plugin or API driven captions will become inactive when the file is archived.

Step 1- Select files

From the My Files page check the boxes to the left of the filenames of the files you want to archive.
