About transaction capability, I think it will be difficult to implement it
in transaction block,
because during Rollback to savepoint it is difficult to rollback (delete the
file), as there is no track of changes w.r.t
So to handle, we can do one of the following:
1. Handle it at command level only
2. Don't allow this command in transaction blocks
3. Rollback to Savepoint will have no effect w.r.t this command, only when
top transaction commits/rollback,
It commit/rollback the file.
IMO, option-2 is better.
