How to delete no more usable uploaded files?

  1. Aug 30, 2013 #1

    while writing a post, I opened the attachment window and uploaded 5 files.

    When I could go back to the editing window, I found that my token was expired, and could not complete my post.

    Unfortunately, I closed all windows. So, now there are 5 unused files in the forum's memory, but I find no way to remove them.

    I've saved urls of only 3 of the 5 files:



    Regards, Tommaso

    Thanks for letting us know. Shouldn't be a big deal.

    Is it better to upload a file (let's say an image) using PF, or an outside site, such as imgur?

    I think its better to upload on PF because the threads stay intact even after a long time. If you upload them to other image hosting websites, the images may get deleted in future. I don't know about imgur but I have experienced this with tinypic.
