METHOD:  FileSystemObject.DeleteFile

Implemented in version 2.0
object.DeleteFile file [, force]

This method is used to delete a specified file or files (using wildcards). The optional force parameter returns a Boolean value - True allows files with read-only attributes to be deleted, while False (default) does not. Trying to delete a read-only file without setting force to True will return an error.

Note that an error also occurs if you try to delete a file that doesn't exist.

If filesys.FileExists("c:\somefile.txt") Then
   filesys.DeleteFile "c:\somefile.txt"
   Response.Write("File deleted")
End If
