There are many reasons to remove an item from your Divi Cloud. There are also many reasons to restore a Divi Cloud item once it’s been removed. Fortunately, it is a simple process to restore your Divi Cloud items. In this post, we’ll see how to restore a Divi Cloud item from scratch. We’ll also see how to delete Divi Cloud items.

Let’s get started!

Why Delete a Divi Cloud Item?

First, let’s explore several reasons why we’d delete a Divi Cloud item. Perhaps the main reason is to clear the Divi Cloud library of layouts you no longer need or use. Divi Cloud simplifies building the layout on one website and importing it to another. Once you import a layout you won’t reuse, delete it to regain the space in your Divi Cloud.

Deleting Divi Cloud items makes Divi Cloud easier to use. Sorting and searching through your Divi layouts is easy enough with Divi Cloud, but finding the perfect layout is much easier if you don’t have to search and sort through lots of layouts you’ll never use.

Another reason to delete your Divi Cloud items is you might run out of space. The free Divi Cloud account stores 50 items. This includes the items in the trash folder. If your account exceeds 50 items, the oldest item in your trash folder will be deleted permanently to make room. Delete items you don’t use to conserve space within your free account. Of course, you can upgrade Divi Cloud for unlimited storage.

Even though deleting an item is simple, it’s just as simple to restore deleted items.

  6. Finally, locate the layout you want to find by searching, sorting, or filtering the Divi Cloud items. Search by keywords or favorites, select categories and/or tags to filter them, or sort them based on time, name, or favorites.

  2. Next, click the purple plus icon on the Divi toolbar at the bottom of the page to open the Divi Library.
  3. Click the tab at the top labeled “Your Saved Layouts”.
  4. Next, view your Divi Cloud items. Click the checkbox labeled “My Divi Cloud” under Locations in the left sidebar. Make sure “This Website” is not checked or you’ll delete the layouts from the website’s library.
  5. Make sure Grid View or List View are selected.
  6. Next, locate the layout you want to delete by searching, sorting, or filtering the Divi Cloud items. Search by keywords or favorites, select categories and/or tags to filter them, or sort them based on time, name, or favorites.
  7. In Grid View, click on the three dots in the bottom right corner of the layout’s thumbnail. This opens a popup menu.
  8. Finally, click “Remove from Cloud” or “Delete” in the popup menu to delete the layout from your Divi Cloud. Both options perform the same task. Also, both keep the layout in your website’s library.
  9. Alternatively, you can right-click on the thumbnail in Grid View, the layout in the List View, or the preview in the Layout Details screen to open the menu items and click “Remove from Cloud” or “Delete” in the popup menu.
