Plex – Deleting files from Clients

I’ve recently started using Plex, and Playon/PlayLater in conjunction with XBMC (Kodi). I can’t tell you how fantastic the combination of these products is. That being said, there was a feature absent from Plex that I was missing… The ability to delete media on your server using a Plex client. Well luckily, it’s not far away.

On your Plex server, go to settings>server and click “show advanced”


Then click “library” and tick “allow clients to delete media” and finally save your changes.

plex2Tada! Assuming your NTFS/Share permissions are correct, you should now be able to delete media directly from Plex clients! Just make sure your wife doesn’t delete the game before you watch it!
