Remove suggested files for the attachments. It does not work and takes up room.

My suggestion list refers to files deleted years ago! Please fix this obvious bug and make the suggestion feature optional. The issue was reported long ago but nothing has been made yet. Please act in a timely manner.
I googled to find out how to remove the annoying Suggested Attachments and this page is what I found. You can't? They are useless clutter & increase the risk of attaching the wrong document. Please at least give the option to not display them.

You have two pages of comments asking you to remove the enforced, invasive, and ineffective "suggested attachments" feature. That encourages me to know there are so many other sane people out there, but WHY haven't you gotten rid of this?
They only take you to attaching incorrect files
Please remove the suggested attachments, it doens't make sense AT ALL!!! They're always wrong.
I need my old suggested attachment removed. Please advise HOW
Please Microsoft - allow users the options to torn off BOTH Suggested Attachments AND Suggested Contacts.
The suggested attachments and suggested contacts are:
1) 99% wrong;
2) Very Confusing;
3) Very Distracting;
4) Very Annoying
5) A serious security and confidentiality problem: If the user is tired or not concentrating it is very easy to send an email or attachment to the wrong person(s) AND/OR send a highly confidential or inappropriate attachment.
6) a waste of users' time when we are mentally processing and trying to disregard and avoid the suggestions displayed.
PLEASE Microsoft, Please allow users the options to switch off both Suggested Attachments AND Suggested Contacts.
I agree with everyone else that "suggested attachments" should be OPTIONAL and users should have the ability to turn this off if they wish.

I agree. Its VERY annoying.
Common MS, just delete it. Its completely useless, irrelevant.
Please remove the suggested attachments it stresses me out.
I am fed up with this list of suggested attachments also. It suggests attachments totally irrelevant to the subjects of the emails I send. I deleted the attachments from my documents and one drive folders and they still show up as suggestions every time I attach something to an email. Extremely annoying! Why can't you yo-yos fix this?!
Please remove the suggested attachments feature in email. It is very problematic for business use and presents an unreasonable business risk of attachment of confidential documents to another person or entity.
I have the same problem and I concur with the other posters: Remove this "feature" asap! It is terrible and a security risk.

Update: found a thread on the web that advised deleting all sent emails that have attachments and the list will go away. Guess what? It doesn't remove everything on the list. I deleted all sent emails and still have suggested attachments dating back to 2017 stuck there every time I compose a new email. FIX THIS!!!

I cannot find any way to delete these suggestions. What a useless function. Once something has been attached, why would anyone want to send it again? The suggested files are months old.
I need a solution for Outlook.com/Hotmail, as I do not have Office.
This is an absolutely worthless and invasive "feature".
IF ISN'T BROKEN, DON'T FIX IT
hate this "feature" Give us the ability to go back to how it was
Agree, terrible feature, please make it go away
