  3. Cleanup processed batches: Administration and Monitoring Console > Service > Cleanup > Manual cleanup. Select the Processed batches, choose the period and click the Cleanup button.
  4. Close all sessions: Administration and Monitoring Console > Monitoring > Sessions.
  5. Delete projects from the Server: Administration and Monitoring Console > Settings > Projects.
  6. At this moment, all the data related to the project should already be deleted from the FileStorage.
