Destroying records with a relationship to Electronic File?
When destroying a record with a related record (where the related record has an electronic object attached) the disposition of the record becomes Inactive, not Destroyed.
It won't be marked as Destroyed unless the relationship is removed. But, you can just go ahead and re-add the relationships anyway, afterwards!
This is not the case if the related record is metadata only (it will be marked as Destroyed, no issues).
Is there a way to avoid playing hokey-pokey with the relationships? The ideal scenario is for the record to be marked as Destroyed, while retaining its relationships to those other records. Removing and re-adding relationships to achieve this outcome is a chore.
There is a System Option 'Display a warning if the record is related to other records (When changing disposition or removing records' which I thought would have helped if un-checked. However, all this does it stop the warning itself; the record will still be marked as inactive.
