Hi community

Question:

  1. Why are the folders not deletable?
  2. How can I delete this folders?

Edit: Similar topic, but no solution: Unable to delete a folder "abandoned" after channel deletion - Microsoft Community

Regards, Simon

I think this is due to the fact the channels are still in soft-delete state and it seems there is not yet a proper solution for this Today
Thanks for the answer.

so, I have to wait until the channels are deleted completly after 21 days?
