  2. If you chose to run Tivoli Storage Manager for Administrators, choose Tivoli Storage Manager.

  4. Enter your TSM node name as the User id and your node's password.
  5. In the main window, click on the Utilities menu and select Delete Archive Data.
  6. Browse and select your files for deletion. Place a checkmark beside each of the files and folders you wish to delete.
    • Expand directories by clicking the + symbol next to the folder name.
    • If you place a checkmark beside a folder, all subfolders and files within the folder will be selected as well.

    Click Delete to begin the deletion process.

  7. Confirm that you wish to delete your files and folders from the server.
  8. The deletion status will be displayed as your files are deleted. Click Stop if you wish to abort the process. Click Report if you wish to view a detailed progress report.
