Remove a File - Remove a Filestack File with the REST API

For developers who deal with sensitive data, we offer the ability to remove access to file, which wipes all trace of the file from our servers and deletes it out of temporary storage. If the file was originally pulled from online storage, the Filestack file link is deleted but the original file is not. Per REST, this is accomplished via a DELETE request to the file link

Note: unlike the other examples, this one can't just be copy and pasted into a console, as deleting a file link only works once!

Sample Code
>>> curl -X DELETE**HANDLE**?key=APIKEY
