Why I can't delete a dSource that is already unlinked? I have an existing dSource which I don't need anymore. I was able to successfully unlinked it but why I can't delete baffles me. Is there any steps that I need to do before deleting it?

That's strange. In the "My databases" view, in the left side bar, can you see the delete icon? If so, can you see the tooltip when your mous is over? If so, what is the message?

After an unlink operation, you can delete the dSource normally. But there are some conditions that avoids you delete the dSource (for example, then there is a dependent VDB).

Let us know, please.

If there are any VDB's that are using the dSource or if the dSource is part of a Jetstream Template, you would have to delete those objects first.
