The "Data Archive List" is shown in the page body (see figure 6. Data Archive List). Each archive row shows its Name, its Creation Timestamp and its Size (all the columns are pretty self explaining).

It's possible to download the archive also by clicking on its name
If you choose to delete the archive, press the last column icon.
A confirmation is requested (see figure 7. The confirmation pop-up window). If you approve the action then the archive is removed from both the list and the hard disk of the appliance.

Please be aware that this action is not undoable! Once confirmed the deletion, the archive is lost forever!
