Depending upon the page you are on, you can delete instances of a file on one computer or all current instances of the file on all Windows computers managed by the current Carbon Black App Control Server.

On pages showing tables of files, you can also select multiple files for deletion at the same time. Files are identified by hash, not name, so that (for example) malicious files that rename themselves do not escape deletion.

Deletion of files from the Carbon Black App Control console has the following limitations in scope:

  • Only files that are in the inventory at the time a delete request is made are deleted. Instances that appear later are unaffected.
  • Deletions are applied only to the agents reporting to the server you are logged in to. They cannot be applied to remote servers in a Unified Management environment.
