Hi Carl,

The size is changed when the page is reloaded. Here is how I purge the data:

1. Mark them deleted using the "X" button on the dataset
2. From the history options menu, select 'Purge Deleted Datasets'

I think this will purge the deleted datasets too (correct?) because in the 
yellow box it shows that "This dataset has been deleted and removed from disk". 
But I am not sure if there is any difference with the 3-steps that you advised. 
I think the difference might be that it can purge the dataset one by one in 
your advice, is it?

Thanks

Xiaofei

Hello,

That's a good question! Does the size in the top right change when the page is 
reloaded? Are these datasets copied from another history?

How are you purging the datasets? As Dannon mentioned, if you click the 'X' 
button on the dataset it will 'mark' the dataset as deleted. To permanently 
deleted the datasets (or 'purge' them), you can:

1. Mark them deleted using the 'X' button on the dataset,
2. Then from the history options menu (the button that looks like a gear at the 
top of the history), select 'Include deleted datasets'. This will make the 
dataset you marked as deleted visible in the history again.
3. In the deleted dataset you'll see a yellow box explaining that the history 
has been deleted and showing two links: one for undeleting the dataset (which 
will undo the deletion of the dataset) and one for immediately removing it from 
disk - this link will purge the dataset. Click the second link.

You can hide the deleted datasets again by clicking: history options menu -> 
'Include deleted datasets' again.

If you do the above, does the size in the top right change or still remain the 
same?

Let me know if you need more info,
Carl

Yes, it works. But, I am still a little bit confuse about the size on the top 
right corner. Why does not it change after purging datasets?

I replied too soon.  To answer your second question, yes, that's how to use the 
cleanup scripts from the command line.  Enabling the option from my previous 
email will allow users to *immediately* purge datasets without waiting on those 
cleanup scripts.

Hey, sure.  The option you're looking for is "allow_user_dataset_purge", around 
line 650 or so.

Good luck!

Hi Dannon,

Could you tell me how to edit the configure file?

What I see from here 
https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/Performance/Purge%20Histories%20and%20Datasets
 is how to use the command line, correct?

Thanks a lot!

Best,

Xiaofei

Hi Xiaofei,

The (x) simply flags a dataset for deletion, it does not remove it from disk.  
This happens when the instance maintainers run cleanup scripts.  If your 
instance is so configured, you can use the "Purge Deleted Datasets" option to 
immediately remove datasets from disk.

Dear there,

May I ask a question which might be really simple?

How to delete a dataset from a history in local Galaxy? When I clicked on 
delete (x), the size on disk is still the same as before deleting it.
