Deleting All Files on the Cloud

I want to delete all personal documents stored on my Amazon Cloud service. Still I have more than 400 files there, which sent to device by Calibre Fetch News tool.

1) Is there a way to delete all them, in one action?

2) I don't want to store/backup my Whispernet delivered files on the cloud. When I press 'delete' in my Kindle, I want to delete it forever, I don't want to see that file again. Is there a way to do this?

I'm waiting for your advices.

1) Make a bookmarklet with following code as an address:
Code:
javascript:(function(){ var v = new RegExp("PersonalDocuments"); if (!v.test(document.URL)) { return false; } {a=document.getElementsByClassName('rowBodyCollapsed');for(var i = 0; i<a.length; i++){Fion.deleteItem('deleteItem_'+a[i].getAttribute('asin'));};return; }})();
Log on your Amazon account and go to Manage Your Kindle and then Personal Documents and run this bookmarklet. Or you can paste this code to address bar and hit Enter.

2) Also on Manage Your Kindle site click Personal Documents Settings and in section Personal Document Archiving click edit and uncheck option Enable personal document archiving to my Kindle library

In Your Media Library you can select all the books to be deleted with one click.

That's a very useful link germanor, thanks! I tried deleting a few books from my archive via the manage your kindle pages, and gave up as it was so slow, that media library is a lot better!

Thanks for the bookmarklet

Deleting from Media Library is fine, but biggest amount of files I want to delete are not there, they are 'Personal Documents'.

Does bookmarklet works now?

Hi, I was not successful with the bookmarklet (IE, Chrome).
Maybe something has happened (code was changed?) on Amazon.com web.
Do you have same experience, or does it work for you?

Before using you should choose Personal Documents from the left column.

Thank for this, I get personal documents mailed to me daily so it's such a hassle trying to delete them one by one when I don't need them anymore.

One thing though, it took me a while getting this to work in chrome, because whenever I pasted the link into the address bar it was deleting the 'javascript:' bit at the beginning. Once I manually typed this in it all worked perfectly

Yes the bookmarklet works as well, but one of the posters said you could just paste the link in the address bar. I had no idea what a bookmark let was at first so I guess this ones for the noobs.
