Pending delete assets are assets that have been deleted by users. Pending delete assets are placed in the Pending Delete queue in the asset-related tasks section of the Admin Dashboard by asset group, and you can review and permanently delete or restore the assets.
Pending delete assets consume storage space and are calculated as part of the storage space allowance. File sizes of asset groups display in the Pending Delete queue to help you manage your site storage and delete the largest group of pending delete assets to quickly free up space. They're also included in charts with data about storage in Insights.
Once pending assets are deleted, they can no longer be recovered.
Pending delete assets can be tracked using alerts and email notifications.
