DeleteFile Method

Deletes a vault item.

Syntax

public void deleteFile(String fileName);

Remarks

This method deletes the vault item (file, directory, symbolic link, or alternate stream) specified by FileName from the vault.

The value passed for FileName must be a vault-local absolute path.

Please note that:

  • When a file is deleted, any alternate streams it contains are deleted as well.
  • Directories must be empty to be deleted, otherwise this method throws an exception. Use the IsDirectoryEmpty method to check whether a directory is empty.
  • Deleting a symbolic link only deletes the link itself, not the file it points to.

Note: This method can only be called when Active is true, and cannot be called within events.
