Can someone please help me? I want to delete data from Data Extensions, and I tried different variations. But unfortunately, it didn't work. For info I have so far used variant 1 without any problems. The DE "Used for sending" = NO, USED FOR TESTING = "NO" My Source Code:

 <script runat=server>
Platform.Load("core", "1.1.1");
//-----Start-- write log to DE 

function WriteLog(message, status) {
    var processLogsDE = DataExtension.Init('ent.test_LogXXXXXXXXXX');
    processLogsDE.Rows.Add({ 'message': message, 'status': status });

function WriteErrorLog(message) {
    WriteLog(message, 'ERROR');

function WriteInfoLog(message) {
    WriteLog(message, 'INFO');

//-----End-- write log to DE 


var source_DE_name = 'ent.test_XXXXXXX_be_deleted'; 

var dataRows = Platform.Function.LookupRows(source_DE_name, 'remove', 'True');

if (dataRows && dataRows.length > 0) {
    for (var i = 0; i < dataRows.length; i++) {
        var email_address = dataRows[i].EmailAddress;
        WriteInfoLog("3 Email:" + email_address);
        var from_DE_name = 'ent.White Night – 2018';

        try {
            // 1. variant
            var row_number = Platform.Function.DeleteData(from_DE_name, ['email'], [email_address]);
            // 2. variant 
            //var row_number = Platform.Function.DeleteData(from_DE_name, "email", email_address);
            //3. variant 
            // var deleteDE = DataExtension.Init(from_DE_name);
            // deleteDE.Rows.Remove(["email"], [email_address]);

            WriteInfoLog("[Delete Contact from DE: " + from_DE_name + "] [Email: " + email_address + " ]");

        } catch (e) {



result from variant 1
