Deleting workspace folders

Hello All,

I am trying to delete a track and was successful in doing so from CMS. I also would like to delete the workspace folder associated with that track and I am following note 855537.

I opened this location http://MYCOMPANY:50000/dtr/ws/TRACKNAME/example.org_APPLICATION/dev as a Web folder in IE and went up one level and I cannot delete either the dev or cons folder. I know that I need to delete all the contents of a folder before deleting the folder itself and so I tried going deep in to the folder tree (dev->inactive->SCs->example.org->APPLICATION->_comp->TopLevelDCs->) and found several files (*.dcref) which I can not delete.

I saw the forum question that someone was infact successful in doing so.

Is there something I am missing?

Thanks,

Kiran

    HI

    Please take a look at note 855537 - it explains how to delete a "Workspace folder".

    in NWDS

    1)Sync the workspace folder

    2)Start deleting files,then folders,then using command prompt delete workspace.

    3)Inorder to delete workspacefolder open an IE, file open give the path of the workspacefolder,check the check box

    Open as WebFolder.Here you can delete workspace folder.

    Also, take a look at note 782995 - it describes a feature of DTR ("empty folders are not transported").

    Regards,

    RK

      Hi! I followed the given SAP note. I have successfully deleted the workspace folders using IE. However, when I viewed this using http://<server>:<port>/dtr, the folder is still there.. 😔

      --> Let me correct this. I just forgot to delete the topmost folder. Sorry..

    Also, the note says, "if it can be assured that no developer studio refers to a workspace folder anymore.. ", How does the admin enforce this? Is it using any tool that he can find out if any developer has imported that development configuration?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kiran
