Deleting files from RS3D


How do I delete the RS station data before the period I set in Wave Form Saving? I have tried by FileZilla, but to no success.

Best Regards

Hello Manuelle, welcome to the community!

the files will be automatically deleted after the time you set up in Config → Data → Waveform Data Saving has passed. It is set as 7 days by default, if you haven’t changed it.

Do you require to erase the files on the Shake for some particular reason?


I am using RS to monitor civil works in a location without internet. My need is after downloading the data to delete them immediately so I can return with the stations to the field, I was wondering how I can do this operation?

Best Regards

Ah perfect then.

The data files are located in this folder, once you SSH into the Shake (guide here: How to access your Raspberry Shake’s computer via ssh — Instructions on Setting Up Your Raspberry Shake):


You can use the rm command to remove all the content inside this folder, so your Shake will be ready to go back to the field!

sudo rm -r /opt/data/archive

If you are using WIndows, you can use PuTTY to do this.
