||Strengths: worked the first time I tried it
Details: I adapted this for use with querystring, which makes it also easy to adapt for use with filenames listed in a database:
'this line creates an instance of the File Scripting Object named myFSO
SET myFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'error handling here to make sure that things go smoothly
'if the file does not exist
If myFSO.FileExists("D:\html\gallery\"&request.querystring("file")) Then
'then we delete it
'otherwise we tell the client it does so they don't get a nasty error
Response.Write "THIS FILE DOESN'T EXIST"
'this line destroys the instance of the File Scripting Object named myFSO
SET myFSO = NOTHING
response.write "FILENAME"& " " & request.querystring("file") & " " & "DELETED"

Details: This code worked great for me. I didnt have to do any modifications to get it to work, all I had to change was the file location. Thanks for the code.
