Why don't documents delete from the uploads when they are deleted from the submissions?

    We used the "File Upload" feature and then after the submission we deleted the entry from the database and yet we can still access the document in the uploads section.

    File uploads should be removed when the submission is deleted.  Currently, your forms are not showing any uploaded files.  Do you happen to have a link to the file that is still available?  Let us know the URL and we will be happy to have a look.

    Thank you, we were able to figure out how to permanently delete the files.
