The WebDAVDELETE method deletes a resource at the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The DELETE method can be used to delete collection and property resources.

Only a Depth Header value of "infinity" may be included in a DELETE method on a collection resource. If no Depth Header is included, the DELETE method acts as if a Depth Header value of "infinity" had been included.

The DELETE method may be included in the scope of a transaction by submitting a Transaction Header with a lock token that corresponds to that transaction.

Note  See Authentication and Security Using WebDAV for more information.
