I need to delete and replace a .PDF file which contains a typo. Unfortunately, I deleted it while in Edit mode from inside the post that links to the file, rather than by navigating to the library via the Media tab on the sidebar and then clicking "Delete permanently."
The result is that the file is no longer accessible from my Media Library but somehow still shows up at it's URL: http://syg2010.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/2010-01-21.pdf
The problem is that I want to retain the naming convention of the original media file, as other documents and posts link directly to the above URL. But when I try to re-upload the new version with the corrected typo, it will not allow me to overwrite the phantom original and reuse that URL.
Instead it tries to rename the file 2010-01-211.pdf, 2010-01-211, etc. and the new URL becomes http://syg2010.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/2010-01-211.pdf , etc.
The blog I need help with is syg2000.wordpress.com.
