As you see on the screenshot I have many meshes in the DataBlock view of the Outliner, but in fact, I use only 3.

How to delete rest of them ?

    $\begingroup$ If you save the file and open it again, will it be removed? $\endgroup$ Jul 5 '15 at 10:41
  • $\begingroup$ After several savings and openings the file (and viewing the list of meshes in Object Tab), yes, but I assume there must be a better way then just reloading project hoping that this time it will helps... $\endgroup$

Change the outliner view mode to "Orphan Data" instead of "Datablocks".
To the right of the search field in the header is a "Purge All" button;

and may simplify your problem.

This button essentially performs the save and reload process in one click, which in turn invokes Blenders garbage collection routines.

  • $\begingroup$ Well... In Orphan Data I see here only "brushes". And of course pressing "Purge All" button doesn't help. $\endgroup$
