Deleting a media item removes it completely from the UpStage server. It is important to do this with media that you no longer want to avoid the server becoming unnecessarily cluttered. This practice also makes it easier to find the media you do want!
Note that deleting media from the server is different to unassigning it from a stage. You can unassign media from the Stage Management interface or the Media Management window for that media item. Then it will no longer be available on that stage, but it is still on the UpStage server and can be assigned to other stages.
NOTE: Media Management has been replaced by The Studio; navigation and screenshots here are now out of date, but The Studio has similar functionality. The manual will be updated soon.
To delete a media item from the UpStage server:
- In the Backstage, click on “Media” in the top navigation menu and locate the item you want to delete in the media list.
- At the right in the “Manage Media” column, click on the red trash icon.
- You will be prompted to say yes or no to deleting the item. If you say yes, it will be removed from the server and no longer available on any stages or anywhere in the system. You will need to re-upload the file if you have deleted it by mistake.
