In this example, we will use exists() and remove() of "os" library to delete file from directory. so let's see below example and do it.

exists() will check file is exists or not.

remove() will delete file from path.

You can use these examples with python3 (Python 3) version.

import os
filePath = 'files/image1.png';
# Check File is exists or Not
if os.path.exists(filePath):
    # Delete File code
    print("The file has been deleted successfully!")
    print("Can not delete the file as it doesn't exists")


The file has been deleted successfully!

I hope it can help you...
