K1000 - Can downloaded Dell Updates be deleted?

07/07/2017 1172 views
My organization's K1000 was configured to download all Dell Updates for a couple of years (via "Security", "Dell Updates", "Update Subscription", "Configure -> All Files"). If I'm understanding the concept correctly, this wasn't really necessary as the "Files detected as missing" option would have been a better one, considering we only deploy around 15 different models of Dell hardware and don't introduce new hardware or operating systems frequently.

How can we delete the Gigs of unused/unwanted Dell Updates that we have now accumulated on our K1000? I can freely browse the 3200+ Dell Updates updates we have, but there is no obvious way to delete them, selectively or otherwise. I can set them to "Inactive", but that doesn't seem to actually delete them.

Thanks in advance.

If you go to Security > updates > Dell Update Subscriptions and you should see the options for Delete Update Files or Delete Unused Files, that should help

  • Delete unused files showed zero available for deletion. The Delete Files option works, but will delete everything, including the valid updates that we need. I was hoping to avoid that, but it looks like the only way to go. I went ahead and used the Delete Files option and am now in the process of re-downloading the updates we need.

    Thank you.
