Hi All,

Updating the issue: Just checked and one of the child folder is corrupted and now I am trying to delete the same folder but its not allowing me to delete.

Is there any sql2 query to delete the folder by crxde because manually I am not able to delete the folder in crx/de or dam.

Please suggest how can I delete forcefully the child folder.




Hi Varun,

Are you getting segment not found exceptions ? Or any other errors related to corruption ?

If yes , you can use below document to fix inconsistency in the repository -

Fix Inconsistencies in the repository when SegmentNotFound Issue is reported in AEM 6.x





If you REALLY want to programatically delete the node an option would be to stop the AEM instance and use the OakRun JAR in Console mode in the following way.

java -jar oak-run-*.jar console /path/to/oak/repository --read-write

Which will bring up a console


Where you can load this rmNode script



Then you just pass in the path you want to delete.

rmNode(session, "/path/to/node")

eg :

rmNode(session, "/content/dam/projects/us/owners/glovebox-manual/2013")
