Deleting Content Files

Last Updated: Dec 27, 2016 | Print this Article

This article covers how to delete Content Files from your Pardot account. If you're running out of Pardot storage space, or just want to clean up your account, you can delete your irrelevant or outdated Pardot-hosted files.

Unlike most assets created in Pardot, you cannot undelete Files, Advanced Dynamic Content, or Tags. These assets are permanently deleted and will not be archived in the recycle bin.


  1. Navigate to Marketing > Content > Files.
  2. To delete a single file, click the gear icon () next to the file, then click Delete.
  3. To delete multiple files, mark boxes next to the name of the files you wish to delete, then scroll to the bottom of the table and select Delete from the drop down, then click Go.
