#44014 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Use wp_delete_file() instead of unlink() when generating a privacy data export file

In #43905, the suggestion was made to use wp_delete_file() instead of unlink() when preparing a privacy data export file. This is a good suggestion, but it was made too late in the 4.9.6 process.

Creating this ticket to keep track of this suggestion for 4.9.7.

Thanks for creating this to help keep track :)

IIRC, there are a few other instances of unlink() in the 4.9.6 commits. @macbookandrew found another in https://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/43546/43546.patch. I think it'd be good to find them all and update them all at once.
