Hi. I know how one can delete a file from commons via web interface. But given that there is a restore button, I think it still lives on the commons p4 server. How can I delete a large file in commons for sure? (no restore, clean space)

You'd have to have someone with administrator rights use "p4 obliterate" (either from the command line, or more easily through the Administration tool).

I tend to err on the side of living with (i.e., documenting) our mistakes, but sometimes something is just too ludicrous and/or takes up too much disk space and it needs to be destroyed.
