A couple of ways:

- an easy - but unintuitive - FM way is to export an empty field to the same file name; FM will delete the target file

- or use Send Event and use the OS CLI to delete the file

- (if you are already using a plugin with file manipulation functions, then it can be done that way too)

You can also use Export Field Contents and skip specifying the field.  There are a few more ways as well, such as exporting 0 records using same path file name.  All similar principle so it's which you like best.  I like Export Field Contents; picked up from Comment, I suspect.
