Deleting, moving, or renaming a remote file in a Contribute site

Deleting a file from the remote server that hosts a Contribute site works much like deleting a file from the server for any Dreamweaver site. However, when you delete a file from a Contribute site, Dreamweaver asks whether to delete all older versions of the file. If you choose to keep the older versions, Dreamweaver saves a copy of the current version as well so you can restore it later.

Renaming a remote file or moving it from one folder to another in a Contribute site works the same way it works in any Dreamweaver site. In a Contribute site, Dreamweaver also renames or moves the associated previous versions of the file that are saved in the _baks folder.

To delete a remote file:

  1. Select the file in the Remote pane of the Files panel (Window > Files), and then press Backspace (Windows) or Delete (Macintosh).

    A dialog box appears asking you to confirm that you want to delete the file.

  2. If the Delete Rollback Versions option appears in the confirmation dialog box, do one of the following:
    • To delete all previous versions of the file as well as the current version, select the Delete Rollback Versions option.
    • To leave previous versions on the server, deselect the Delete Rollback Versions option.
  3. Click Yes to delete the file.

    The file is deleted. If you chose to delete previous versions, they are deleted as well. If you chose not to delete previous versions, a copy of the current version is saved in the _baks folder as a new revision of the file.
