Delete a Project

Perform the following steps to delete a Project Center project that you no longer need.

Deleting a project does not delete or change the actual source files used in the project - the Project Center project only points to the source files. You must use Windows Explorer to delete the actual files in the project.

You must be a Project Center administrator to delete a project.

To delete a project

1.     If you are not already there, open the Project Center Administration activity center (shown below) by clicking Project Center Administration from the Tasks panel of the My Project Center activity center, or from the Activities list.

2.     Select the project you want to delete from the Projects tab.

3.     Click Delete from the Tasks panel.

4.     Click Yes to confirm the deletion, as shown here.

5.     Optional: When asked if you want to create a backup for the project, click Yes from the confirmation message if you want to create a backup before the project is deleted. The Choose a Folder dialog box opens. (Click No if you want to delete the project without creating a backup.)

6.     Locate and select the folder in which to store the project backup, then click OK to create the backup and delete the project. When the process is completed, click OK, as shown here.

Click Send Log Files to send the log file to Newforma Support if there were any problems deleting the project.

7.     Project Center creates a record backup of the project and global data in one .ZIP file. The file name is [Project Name]-[Project Number]-[Date].NRB. The .ZIP file contains two files:  

        Project Backup: zip - (name [Project Name] – [Project Number] – [Date].npb)

        Global data backup: zip - (name [Server]-[Date].ngb)

        The project is removed from Info Exchange during the next synchronization (which typically takes a few minutes). During nightly maintenance, the project is in a deleted state and the file transfers are moved to a projectname.deleted folder. This folder is saved for a week before it is permanently removed.
