    Delete files from server

    sdluthier
      Rather that putting or getting files from the server, how do I delete them off of the server? I've been clicking on a file, then right clicking and selecting delete, but does this actually remove the file off of the server?

      I've perused the internet and the help menu and can't find the answer-is that because it's as obvious as what I am doing already?

      Thanks in advance for any help offered!

          It does if you're using Remote View in the Files panel.

            If you in local view, then it deletes the local file. If in remote view, then it deletes the remote file.

              When I open the Site page I have the Local Folder on the right, and after connecting I have the Remote Site on the left. By 'remote view' do you mean clicking on and thus highlighting a file on the Remote Site side of the page (then right-clicking and selecting delete)?

              Thanks for the responses.

                Yes.

                NB:
                I prefer the Remote View on the RHS which is a setting in Preferences
                Edit > Preferences > Site, "Always show Local files on the Left"

                  Thanks John! I really appreciate your response. I changed the remove view to the right side, it seems more intuitive that way.

                    Agreed.

                    The reasoning behind the default setting of the Remote View being on the
                    left has always eluded me.
