I've a C# windows application that scans for Zip files at a remote URL
address and downloads them to the local machine when they arrive. I
can do that OK with HttpWebRequest or WebClient.

After they've been downloaded I want to delete them from the remote
location (or if not possible, move or rename them). I can't see how to
do it.

Any Sample Code for that ...

Thanks in Advance

That's really not an answer to the question.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "web share". If it's just a directory on a web server...then no, you absolutely can't remotely delete files. If you have FTP access, you can.

I've merged your posts. Please don't double post your questions.

hi ,
this is mani

i found out that solution using HTTP Webrequest can do this ...

Uri serUri = new Uri(URL);
HttpWebRequest wr = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(serUri);

//long fileSize = fi.Length;
NetworkCredential myCred = new NetworkCredential(Domain/username, password);
CredentialCache MyCredentialCache = new CredentialCache();
MyCredentialCache.Add(serUri, "Basic", myCred);
wr.Credentials = MyCredentialCache;

//Set the request timeout to 5 minutes.
wr.Timeout = 300000;
// set the request method
wr.Method = "DELETE";

//Send the request and get the response.
HttpWebResponse HttpWResponse = (HttpWebResponse)wr.GetResponse()
this is code to delete a file in Web share HTTP

With Regards
