Default Deleting images automatically after upload with EOS Utility

Is there a way to delete images automatically from the camera's SD card after uploading to a PC by using the Canon EOS Utility?

I saw an option to do that sometime in the past, but now I want to use it, I can't find it anywhere. Maybe this option was in an old version of the EOS Utility and Canon removed it for some reason?

G'day mate

If you cannot find a 'move' [rather than a 'copy'] option, try Windows to do the actual move from the card into your photo folder. Take it carefully the first time, as it will remember your options for the future

Hope this helps

Thanks, Phil.
There are two problems about deleting from the card directly.
The first is that all the tasks that are performed automatically with the EOS utility are pretty useful - as soon as I connect the camera, the images are downloaded automatically to the right folder, Adobe Bridge opens to preview and manage all the pictures, and then I just have to click a picture for it to open in Photoshop.
The second is that if I move the files using the normal Windows built-in utilities, I can't preview the pictures because they are in CR2 format and it's a lot more difficult to know which images I should be moving. I am quite frequently in a situation where I want to upload only a selection of the images rather than all of them.
