Yeah. It means that nobody can access it except for you or staff. Just in case you want it back ;) And I think because customers that bought the item should still be able to dl it. Not sure about the latter though.

You have to contact support to have it deleted permanently. It happened to me too ;-)

When you delete the item it goes into your hidden files but the item only gets deleted from your portfolio so no one else see’s it, it won’t get deleted from the hidden files ;)

I think this is how it works…

in the past… if you deleted an item it would only get deleted after 30 days but it still shows up in your portfolio and can be seen for 30 days by everyone

Now if you delete an item, it is removed from your portfolio and not visible to non-buyers… and it is shown in your in hidden tab for 30 days and can only be viewed by the author and buyers of the file… then after 30 days it is removed…

Deleted manually of course.. Trust me they don’t get deleted from your hidden tab unless you contact support maybe ;)
