So I'm trying to do something I thought was fairly uncomplex but as it turns out it's proving to be somewhat of a mission in SS, which is frustrating!

- I have a register where users can upload their resumes via a front-end form, along with other data
- A user can only have one resume file (rtf or doc)
- If a user wants to upload a new file, the old file is removed/overwritten

Now the site administrators need to be able to search through and download resumes from the back-end. They have a specific naming convention which will allow them to match resumes with their owners easily. I have the following issues:
- Are there methods to overwrite/delete an existing asset?

The whole point of this system is to minimize their workload, so they don't want to be going in and sifting through old/obselete CVs and deleting them.

Would appreciate any feedback on the best way to achieve this.

So I managed to get this working by borrowing the following from AssetAdmin:

$file = DataObject::get_by_id('File', $delegatedata->CVID);
