How to unpublish a quick published PDF if the original PDF has been deleted?

Hi guy!

 

I posted a PDF to AEM, quick published it, and deleted the test file. But I just realized that the quick publish link is still working. How can I unpublish it? Thank you!

You should check your Caching rules (browser cache rule on apache, dispatcher flush, and CDN caching) to make sure assets (like pdf) get flushed immediately or within the business agreed time.

Delete action on author Deactivate / Unpublish the asset first before deleting it. 

I believe PDF may be cached either on Browser/CDN or Dispatcher. Please try passing random query string ?q=123 to PDF link to check if it's also accessible.

I just checked again and the link does not work any more. Can I just leave it as it? Will the file take up any cloud storage room? Do I need to take any actions?
