Pointer to an IShellItem that specifies the item to be deleted.

[in] pfopsItem

Pointer to an IFileOperationProgressSink object to be used for progress status and error notifications for this specific delete operation. If you call IFileOperation::Advise for the overall operation, progress status and error notifications for the delete operation are included there, so set this parameter to NULL.

  1. Call IFileOperation::DeleteItem to declare the file or folder to be deleted.
  2. Call IFileOperation::PerformOperations to begin the delete operation.
