Working with deleted datasets

Deleted datasets and histories can be recovered by users as they are retained in Galaxy for a time period set by the instance administrator. Deleted datasets can be undeleted or permanently deleted within a History. Links to show/hide deleted (and hidden) datasets are at the top of the History panel.

  • To review or adjust an individual dataset:
    1. Click on the name to expand it.
    2. If it is only deleted, but not permanently deleted, you’ll see a message with links to recover or to purge.
      • Click on Undelete it to recover the dataset, making it active and accessible to tools again.
      • Click on Permanently remove it from disk to purge the dataset and remove it from the account quota calculation.
  • To review or adjust multiple datasets in batch:
    1. Click on the checked box icon galaxy-selector near the top left of the history panel (Select Items) to switch into “Operations on Multiple Datasets” mode.
    2. Accordingly for each individual dataset, choose the selection box. Check the datasets you want to modify and choose your option (show, hide, delete, undelete, purge, and group datasets).
