Usage differences for the "delete" action

The "delete" action has usage differences between FileStore (NS3) and ObjectStore (NS4).

Explicit directories

  • FileStore: This does not apply. There is no concept of an implicit directory in a FileStore storage group—all directories must be physically created. (They are "explicit.") You can delete an empty, physical directory with this action.
  • ObjectStore: An explicit directory can be deleted. If it contains any files, they will be moved to the next parent in the path, and the deleted directory will then exist as an Implicit directory, associated with the “moved” files.
