Why am I missing option to delete lists and libraries? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just setup my first SharePoint 2010 site using the Publishing Site template. I seem to be missing the option to delete libraries. From what I understand, the option should be listed under Permissions and Management Settings on the List/Library Settings page. However, I don't have this option... I am logged in with an account that has Full Control permission.

    What am I missing? Thanks!

  • Hi EdwardLee,

    Have you tailored any of the permissions in anyway? Did you create seperate permissions or inherit from the parent site?  If you goto Site Settings > Site Permissions > Check Permissions and just confirm the correct permission are given for the account you're using?

  • Hi EdwardLee,

    There's a step by step guide for deleting a library here .  If you can't delete following these instructions then I suggest it's definately a permission thing.  Unless you're trying to delete a "Drop off" library which I think can't be deleted from the interface.

  • Thanks PT_UK. I tried these instructions, but still no luck. I can't understand how this could be a permissions thing either... I am logged in as under a farm administrator account. Shouldn't that give me sufficient permission?

    Thanks!

  • I haven't tailored permissions in any way. I tried both inheriting from permission and setting individually on the library that I wish to delete. Strange!!
