[LON-CAPA-users] obsoleting a file

I'd like to add a follow-up question to the one below. 

I've been able to delete regular html files -- I follow the procedure
below and then edit the source and collect DELETE, no problem -- but I
can't open a zip file to use the DELETE button on them.  I make them
obsolete but then can't "open" or "edit" them to use the DELETE button.
Is there someway of removing them as well?

You need to re-publish the file and check the "obsolete" box. You can
also specify a file which you recommend to use instead.

After obsoleting them, they will show up gray ("zombie"). You can then
delete them.
