    I have uploaded the PDF file.
    I have used the link to this item in my e-mail correspondence.
    Now I want do delete the PDF file permanently.
    I have preformed the appropriate action, I have chosen the option “Delete file permanently”, but the link still works.
    I can still download the file – but I can not see it in my media directory.

    Any idea what to do to truly delete the file permanently?

    The blog I need help with is marcinbrzezicki.wordpress.com.

    How long ago did you delete the file from your WordPress.com Media Library? It normally can take a few days after deleting before WPcom removes it permanently from the onsite cache.

    You might be seeing a cached version. Since deleting the file, have you also deleted your browser cache and/or cookies? http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache (Warning, this will sign you out of all sites you may currently be logged into.)

    Thanks a lot.
    I have just checked recently.
    It has already gone!
