While I can’t confirm because I haven’t seen it happen myself, I have a suspicion that something like what you described has happened at the RAC before.

An archivist swore that they had the component selected, but the entire resource was deleted. It’s only happened once, and we can’t really test for it, but I think it’s possible that it happened here.

We are using version 1.3.0.

Hello everyone,

Just throwing this out to the ArchivesSpace community to see if anyone else has been having this problem. While attempting to delete an archival object within a collection, instead of deleting the single item, the entire collection was deleted instead. This was not the case of accidentally selecting the collection level of the hierarchy, as the object that we wanted to deleted was showing up below.

Basically, it seemed like the entire collection deleted itself on accident, which we don’t want to happen again! Anyone else experience this, or something similar?

Thank you,
