Some of our technical users have begun migrating their content to Pages so they can leverage the new web publish tools such as versions, save as draft and widgets. Part of migration may include deleting old content.
After you have migrated your existing content and/or re-built/designed a new page the question is "What do I do with my old content?" For most people this means deleting the content. Before you delete here are some of the things you should be thinking about.
1. Review the folder contents
Make sure you have reviewed the Folder Contents section on every folder and sub-folder - so you are not accidently deleting content.
2. Verify your migrated content
Test the new web pages and if you centralized your documentation ensure all your documents are there, organized properly and access levels are set.
3. Check twice, delete once
Once you select delete, you will be prompted with the message below. Remember there is no recycle bin or restore option.
When in doubt - don't delete. Change the Access setting to private and members and groups set to None. Leave it that way for a couple of weeks to ensure that your migration was sucessful.
