After deletion from Web Presence Builder GUI files remain on disk

Symptoms

After removing the picture from site and publishing the site in Web Presence Builder the image will remain in %domain_dir%/httpdocs/attachments/Image/ even though it's not used anymore. The same thing happens with clients that use the "Blog" functionality and upload images. When they delete older blog posts the images remain in /attachments/ .

Cause

This behavior is by design. WPB firstly removes this image from its server (WPB directory) and on the second publish time it synchronizes httpdocs folder of domain.

Resolution

As a workaround press 'Publish' button again to delete unnecessary pictures from server.
