Type: Bug


A picture has been deleted but still displays on the web site. The same is true for uploaded files that are linked to on a website - they can still be downloaded and thus accessable.


This problem is caused by a bug in Content Studio that does not remove the file in the underlying file system when the document is thrown in the recycle bin.


Remove the deleted document from the recycle bin, this will cause the physical file to be removed permanently.


This problem has been fixed in Content Studio version 4.0 build 1005

More information

Build 1005 will empty all physical files including the thumbnail or highres version of a picture that uses the image processing functionality. The files will not be removed, only made empty and a side effect of this is that when the file is an downloadable document ex. .DOC or .PDF the downloaded document will appear completly empty to the consumer. Ordinary Content Studio documents will be filled with the default empty content. When the document is restored the files will be written back again. However, the latter is not true for ordinary documents that must be approved before any file is written.
