I am new to archive.org.

I uploaded a pdf file of an old magazine.
I then tried to change the thumbnail of this item to the first page of the magazine by downloading, editing and uploading *scandata.xml file as described in https://archive.org/post/1100768/how-do-you-change-a-thumbnail.

I did that already for about dozen or so files.

When the page was displaying "processing, please be patient" message, I accidentally closed the browser. This seems to have corrupted the item.

Now the item has no pdf, no files and I can't delete it.
