What can be done with a junk profile that was created in a GEDCOM import?

Can this profile be deleted somehow?  It is blank and the only source information is what was dragged over from the gedcom import, referencing a MyHeritage.com Family Tree.

This profile can not be recycled or deleted as she was connected to parents and siblings.

She should be reconnected to the parents until it can be determined that they did not have another daughter. Then the profile should be merged to one of the other female siblings.

Surely this one can be recycled?

It does not meet the criteria to be recycled. It had parents attached, you detached them. Records in that time period pre-1700. almost pre-1500, can be hard to find. The parents have several children and no good sources for any of them.

Those profiles need more research. The only reason it appears to meet the criteria to be recycled is that the parents were detached. That was done without proving they were the incorrect parents.
