Showing and then deleting files on the server

Hi,

I just purchased DFP2 and already own DataAssist and was wondering how to do the following with it.

Show all images contained within a directory on the server with thumbnails and have a delete check box next to item so that they can be deleted.

Here's why!

i designed an admin back end for a client so that they can manage their items in the store. They have options to upload the images for the product etc, BUT they requested that they have a delete function for when they don't want a particular product image anymore. Same goes with when they would like to select an image they have already uploaded to the server, How do we display a list of images contained within the directory on the server when the filename is contained within the product details table along with all the other product fields.

So how do i do this? Would i create a function within the product update page seeing as this is where they upload the images seems logical to place the remove image option here also or do i create a separate page for the sole purpose of managing product images?

Anyone with any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers
