1 Answer 1


check this one


$password = Read-Host -Prompt "Enter password" -AsSecureString
$credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials("[email protected]", $password)

$siteUrl = "https://yourtenant.sharepoint.com/sites/yoursitecollection"
$context = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($siteUrl)
$context.Credentials = $credentials

$fileUrl = "/sites/yoursitecollection/path_to_file/filename";
$versions = $context.Web.GetFileByServerRelativeUrl($fileUrl).Versions;


for($i=10;$i -lt $versions.Count-10; $i++)

    This works, but it ends up deleting every other version. So if I have a document with 110 versions, I'm left with 65. Commented Jun 6, 2016 at 13:45
