How to view and delete binary files in OU Campus

Binary files include pdfs as well as image files such as: .jpg, .png, .gif, and also files such as PowerPoint (.ppt), Excel (.xls), Word (.doc), etc.

Important: the binary files you delete from the production (live) server will be permanently deleted. It is recommended you have a copy of the files in a separate place if you are not certain you are done with them.
