Purging a folder or file

Sending a HTTP DELETE to the Atom representation of a folder or file will purge it completely. Please note: there is no undo and this is a single-step process; once files are deleted they are deleted for good - if you delete a folder, all files beneath it will also be deleted. We do not need to send any extra content with the DELETE.

Enter host password for user 'cuscav':
