Description:
  Delete a file, and send it to the Recycle-Bin, so you can undo the operation.
  
SHFILEOPSTRUCT fp;
ZeroMemory(&fp, sizeof(fp));
// MSDN: Use only fully-qualified path names. Using relative path names will have unpredictable results.
// Ahh it would connect to NASA and then ... NOT!

char fname[] = "c:\\somwhere\\filename.txt\0"; // Double null terminated
fp.wFunc = FO_DELETE;
fp.pFrom = (LPCSTR)fname;
fp.pTo = "\0"; // Double null terminated

// Delete it silently without any confimations or errors (if occur).
fp.fFlags = FOF_ALLOWUNDO | FOF_NOCONFIRMATION | FOF_NOERRORUI;
if (SHFileOperation(&fp) != 0) {
 MessageBox(0, "File was NOT deleted!", "Error", 0);
}
else MessageBox(0, "File was moved to Recycle-Bin!", "Error", 0);
