The How to: Delete Files and Directories in Isolated Storage example demonstrates the use of the DeleteFile method.

The following code example uses the DeleteFile method to delete a number of files in isolated storage.

public void DeleteFiles()
{
    try
    {
        IsolatedStorageFile isoFile = IsolatedStorageFile.GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.User |
            IsolatedStorageScope.Assembly |
            IsolatedStorageScope.Domain,
            typeof(System.Security.Policy.Url),
            typeof(System.Security.Policy.Url));

        String[] dirNames = isoFile.GetDirectoryNames("*");
        String[] fileNames = isoFile.GetFileNames("*");

        // List the files currently in this Isolated Storage.
        // The list represents all users who have personal
        // preferences stored for this application.
        if (fileNames.Length > 0)
        {
            for (int i = 0; i < fileNames.Length; ++i)
            {
                // Delete the files.
                isoFile.DeleteFile(fileNames[i]);
            }
            // Confirm that no files remain.
            fileNames = isoFile.GetFileNames("*");
        }
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(e.ToString());
    }

}
