Deleting books in the cloud: only 10 each time?

Hello!

I read some threads and found out I can delete books/pdocs in Amazon's cloud by going to "manage my devices".

That said, could you clarify something to me? Is it correct that I can only delete 10 books/pdocs each time? I'm not able to delete more than ten because Amazon don't let me select more than this number of files per time*. I have 1200+ (mainly daily feeds) files that I want to remove, is there any way I can select all files and delete them?

Thanks!

* Does the expression "per time" is used in such a context in English, with the meaning of "each time"? The literal translation to Portuguese is very used in Brazil in this sense, I'm wondering if in English it also exists.

Hi,

You can access your personal documents also via Cloud Drive (https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/) and there's no limitation how many files you can select and delete.

I also read in the threads concerning removing documents from the cloud that if you delete the file from the Cloud Drive, it will remain in your Kindle Device's cloud and also in the other apps that can access Kindle's Cloud, such as Kindle For Android.

I'm not completely sure, but what I have understood from the threads is that the Cloud Drive is somehow independent of the Kindle's cloud.

If you go to manage my kindle and devices at Amazon, you can delete or send up to 10 files at a time.
Hey feel privileged. Up until last year, it was one at a time.

So yes, you will be a while doing it.

Then, you confirmed my suspicions but, well, after looking at things from that perspective, yes, it could be terribly worse if it still was 1 file per time!

I noticed your little side question.
Best answer should be at a time not each time.
Once you are logged in, you can delete as many as you want but only 10 at a time. When they are deleted, you can immediately do 10 more.

One of the members here cleaned out her files going back to 2011. I think it took her over a month.
Last I checked, my kindle collection was over 8500.

I cleaned out my large archive just before they changed the page to doing 10 at a time. It was before the infinity scroll and we had pages. My books go back to 2008 and it took me weeks and weeks to get it done. I had got a lot of freebies in the early days that looking at them later I went WTF. So I cleaned out like close to 1000 books. One by frogging one.

There was a bookmarklet somewhere that could delete in bulk -- this was back in the pre-infinity-scroll days and the bookmarklet could delete unlimited books at a time.

I don't remember where or if it was ever updated for the new MYK...

IIRC if you delete it from Cloud Drive it will be deleted in Kindle Cloud as well, but it will still be in the recycle bin in the Cloud Drive.

Hey Atunah,
Should we hit him now or later ?
Thanks for the heads up long after we need it.

I wouldn't have been comfortable to use something I don't understand anyway.
In order for my stuff to continue working, I refrain from installing, running, fiddling with things that are latin to me.
