  1. We'll have to think about how to describe the "delete" action in Bisque. As of March 2016, deleting a file or directory using the Bisque interface, does not delete the file/dir from iRODS. The file is still there, but no longer registered with Bisque. There is not an easy way to re-register files at this time. It can be done by staff using a script. We could create a user module to do this. 

    Also, I added a comment on the "Using Datasets" page about deleting elements and datasets.
