RM 1.1 Deleting a resource: hard or soft?

    When I click on delete in Resource Tools in the RH sidebar of a resource, sometimes I get the option to hard or soft delete (expected) but at other times I get no option, just "delete" which seems to hard delete.

    I would expect to always get the option.

    What is causing this difference please?

    If you don't get an option, then it would likely be a soft deletion, rather than hard.

    Soft deletion is usually accompanied by a reason, whereas a hard deletion wouldn't have a reason. So, if you see just the ability to enter a delete reason, that will be a soft deletion.

    The difference is likely in permissions. It is possible that you have the hard delete permission in some categories but not in others.

    OK, thanks will look into that.

    It seems it was hard delete though. Also I don't understand why some resources have this and not others, which give the option.

    If it asked you for a reason, it won't be a hard delete.

    I also explained that:
