      4. Select Excel (Full) format.

      6. Click Export.

      7. Once the export is complete, enter 'true',  'yes', or '1' into the Delete column for the Parent Digital Assets you wish to remove entirely.

´╗┐The import logic in this process is case-sensitive, and it will only consider lowercase values for these three options.
