Delete downloaded data from My Data?

Is there a way to delete historical data from "My Data".  When I get new data it's hard to discern it from the old data I downloaded...other than looking at the number of downloads.  It would be great to be able to delete files.  Not only to keep the My Data area clean, but to free up space on the QuantConnect servers.  No sense storing the files if they're no longer wanted.

Hmmm ok interesting. We don't actually store separate copies of the data -- there's only 1 copy shared between everyone. 

I'd recommend using our IDataFileSource plugin in LEAN which will automatically download the data you need from your QuantConnect My Data Library -- so then you don't need to do anything to manage what data is downloaded.

Interesting indeed.  Here's what I'm talking about.  One of the links is to data I received a few weeks ago, the other is to data I got today.  You can see they both have different links.  So wouldn't they be separate .zip files somewhere on your servers?

Thanks for the screen shot; that looks like a bug. We'll look into a fix on Monday. Although you can request the same data multiple times, it should only present you with one link per file. Thank you for bringing it to our attention!

Perfect, that's exactly what I'm looking for!
