The command line option
--purge permanently deletes a directory or file, including all historical versions, from your SpiderOak account. It is not reversible. Basic usage is:
SpiderOakONE --device=DEVICE_NUMBER --purge=/path/to/file
For example, a command on Windows might look like:
cmd /c "C:\Program Files\SpiderOakONE\SpiderOakONE.exe" --device=2 --purge="C:\Users\Username\My Documents\unwanted.doc"
The device number is optional and defaults to the device you are seated at. You can only delete data on a device other than the one you are seated at if they both use the same operating system. The purge command uses OS-specific paths, so you can't purge on a device that uses different types of paths. For example, you cannot delete files from a Windows device while seated at a Mac.
If you don't know the device number you want, you can use the command
--userinfo to see a complete listing of computers in your SpiderOak account and their device numbers.
Only files and directories can be purged, not devices. There is no command line option to purge a device.
If you only wish to delete historical versions but not the current version, then use --purge-historical-versions instead of --purge.
