  2. Delete it from your media library files.

  3. When you delete a post, page, comment, or media file from your blog, it will be moved to the Trash folder. You have separate trash folders for posts, pages, comments, and uploads. Make sure you have deleted it permanently from your Trash folder

  4. Go to Media Library. Find it, tick it and get it deleted. It's PDF file showing a resume, I think.

  5. Thanks timethief and tangbinhduong, you guys totally helped me! It was hiding in my media library.
