SharePoint 2013: How to delete a drop-off library

A drop-off library is a useful SharePoint feature when it comes to content organization, automatic tagging and stuff like that. However, once enabled, it’s not possible to delete a drop-off library in the library settings. But it’s easy to flag this library as deletable via powershell. Deactivate the corresponding site feature first.


$web = Get-SPWeb https://yoursite.com/site
$list = $web.Lists["Abgabebibliothek"] 
$list.AllowDeletion = $true
$list.Update()

Make sure the name of the list matches your selected site language ([“Drop Off Library”] or [“Abgabebibliothek”]).
