I recently made a subsite, but it stopped working for no apparent reason. When I click on the link or navigate to the web address of the subsite, I am directed to a "404 error page." I had put minimal work into this subsite, so I just created a new one that is working fine. However, the old subsite still appears under site contents of the parent site. I'd like to just delete it all together so no one accidentally navigates to it, but can't get into the subsite to do even this. Is there any way to get rid of this subsite?
