From admin training, I thought that file delete in PDM was akin to normal windows (local drive) behavior. I recently discovered this is in error. For example, a deleted file still counts toward filename duplication rules. e.g., if you create and checkin a part file in one folder, delete it, then create the same filename in a different folder, assuming you disallow filename duplication, PDM will block the checkin of the second file.
Of course, in order to truly get rid of a file, you have to DESTROY it, and I think most everyone would agree that right should be reserved for admins.
So, my question is: what do you tell your users about the delete command? Assuming you allow it, of course.
