Delete or recover a spreadsheet or folder in Numbers for iCloud
If you want to reduce the amount of iCloud storage space you’re using or no longer need a spreadsheet or folder, you can delete it. If you change your mind, you can get back (recover) deleted items within 30 days.
Important: When you delete a spreadsheet in Numbers for iCloud, it’s also deleted from Numbers on all your devices set up to use iCloud. If you shared the spreadsheet, it’s no longer available to the people you shared it with.
Delete a spreadsheet or folder
Note: If you delete a spreadsheet that someone shared with you, it’s deleted immediately and can’t be recovered. If you later want to see the spreadsheet again, click the link you received in the original invitation to collaborate, or ask the owner to send it again.
In the spreadsheet manager, select a spreadsheet or folder.
Click the Trash button in the toolbar, or press the Delete or Backspace key on the keyboard.
The item is moved to Recently Deleted (in the spreadsheet manager sidebar).
To permanently delete an item so you can no longer recover it, click Recently Deleted, click the More button on the item thumbnail, then choose Delete.
Recover recently deleted items
You can recover files you delete from iCloud for 30 days.
In the spreadsheet manager, click Recently Deleted in the sidebar.
Move the pointer over a spreadsheet or folder, click the More button on the thumbnail, then choose Recover.
The selected item moves back to its former location in the spreadsheet manager (under Browse and Recents).
To recover all recently deleted items at once, click Recover All at the top of the spreadsheet manager.
