I have the Redirect module installed, but when I add a redirect from an existing file to a new file, the redirect doesn't activate.
I did some digging and found a post suggesting that Drupal can't redirect a file if it already exists, it can only redirect from 404 or pages. Is this true? Is there really no way to redirect from an existing file?
And if it is true, how do I delete the file? There doesn't seem to be a way to delete a file once it is uploaded. The file was originally attached to a content item but that content has since been deleted.
