paper clip plugin (dleting attachments)

Hi All,
i created an application to upload image files using paper clip
plugin,its working successfully,alsoi had a page which l;ists all
the images uploaded by the user.also there is a delete button to delete
the image from db by entering value in the deleted_at fileld in
database not removing that complete row( not from the attachments
files(ie images folder)).but when i tried to delete an image its
getting removed from the images folder under public,can any one
suggest any method to avoid the image not getting deleted from the
public folder

please help me

Thanks in advance,
tony

Try some thing like this
invoke this kind of method when needs to delete picture

def delete_photo
@object= User.find(params[:id])
@object.update_attribute(:photo, nil)
@object.save
redirect_to @object
end
