Q1. What is the 'Unused Attachments'?

  • Unused Attachments means files that were deleted after uploading to the page, but still remain in the attachment list.

  • Unused Attachments are not embedded into any page while you edit a page. As a result, files attached from a file list or files created from a Macro/ Comments also can be deleted. In case of attachment is being used on the page or at Macro/Comments, uncheck before deleting it. Deleted attachments can be recovered from space trash.

Q2. In case of uploading same name files,

  • If a file with the same name is uploaded to the page, all existing files will be replaced with the latest version because of the confluence policy.

  • When you select 'Selected All Old Version', all old version will be selected except for latest version in Attachments Manager, so you can delete unused old files easily.
  • When you upload same name file, you can see the version number at file name.

  • The latest version is displayed as the file name and only the Old Version. The higher the number, the more recent version.

Q3. Can I recover deleted files from trash?
