What is a repository?
A repostitory can be thought of as a storage area from which users can retrieve files to add to their course. There are several repositories enabled by default, such as Server files which contains files from other courses a user has access to, or Upload a file which allows the user to search their computer or USB drive for a file to upload. Other repositories include Google Docs,or Flickr. See Repositories for more information.
How can I enable repositories in Moodle?
Repositories can be enabled by a site administrator in Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Repositories > Manage repositories.
All enabled and visible repositories will appear in the file picker.
How can I delete an embedded file previously added using the file picker?
There is no need to do anything, as any unused files are detected and then deleted automatically after a period of time. Users cannot delete files manually, since they may be used elsewhere.
If I add a file (File resources) to a page, then delete the File resource, will the file I added remain in my Recent files list?
No. The file will not be available.
How do I create a new repository on my site?
You can create a new repository that will show up on the file picker. See File system repository.
