Can't bulk delete "deleted" files

I am trying to permanently delete files from the "Deleted" folder. However, when trying to bulk select files using Shift + Click on any number higher than 100 files and then delete, the webpage becomes unresponsive.

 

I have thousands of files in the deleted folder and my CC storage is full. How can I delete all files at once?

(This is horrile UI/UX by the way. Seems very nefarious to make it this difficult to free up CC space).

there may be delete all in the future but right now either live with it, or work around it.  i know neither are good solutions, but i don't know any other option.

 

to live with it, you can:

 

delete the first 500 or so.

how much space did you recover? 

 

if it's enough for the day, week or month, continue repeat the step-wise deletes (at least, daily, weekly or monthly) until the folder is empty, or adobe resolves the issue with a bulk delete.  one of the benefits of periodically deleting is you'll one of the first to know, if and, when the change occurred and a delete all option is allowed.

 

post back here, if and, when that occurs so other adobe users can benefit.
