    Adding and deleting are complete opposites.

  • Success to will pretty much never be used in English. It's one of the many, many, "rules" about which words do or do not combine with which. success with, in, at, from can be used, depending on the total phrase. probably others too, just not to. Commented May 13, 2019 at 5:36

"Box has been deleted successfully" is the better choice by far. "Box deleted successfully," or simply "box deleted," would also work.
