Documents: Trashing and Recovering Files and Folders

Trashing an Individual File or Folder
Trashing Multiple Files and Folders
Viewing and Restoring Trashed Files and Folders

When you put a folder or a file in the Trash, it can be recovered for up to 30 days before it is permanently deleted. 

Folders for specific Contacts or Matters cannot be trashed. 

If you trash a file or folder that has been shared via Clio Connect or via link, it will no longer be accessible by the recipient.

Trashing an Individual File or Folder

To trash an individual file or folder, click the "Trash" quick link for that file or folder.

If you trash a folder, all of the folder's contents will be trashed as well.

If you trash a file that has multiple versions, all versions of the file will be trashed as well.

Trashing Multiple Files and Folders

To batch select multiple folders and files to go in the trash, check the boxes beside each of the folders and files you would like to trash then select "Trash" from the "Actions" dropdown. 

Viewing and Restoring Trashed Files and Folders

To view folders and files that have been added to the trash, click "Show trashed files".  

Trashed files and folders will now appear in grey with a trash icon along with active files and folders. 

To restore a trashed folder or file, click the "Restore" quick link. 

Restoring a folder will also restore all of the folder's contents. Restoring a file with multiple versions will also restore all file versions. 

Restoring a trashed file or folder that had been shared via Clio Connect will also restore access to that file or folder for the Clio Connect user.
