Bug Description

BleachBit version that i used

1.Check the temporary files checkbox for IE
2.click n delete
3.if error vccurs in one file(eg. its a read only file),remaining all files do not get deleted.

Expected Result:
1.All the remaining files apart frm the file in error should get deleted.
2.The application should ask for user's permission tv delete the readonly files to proceed with deletion of remaining files
3.The summary belw shuld be accurate in this case

Actual result:
1.The remaining files do not get deleted but show as marked for deletion
2.Also the summary below shows
  disk space recovered:x mb(say 15mb)
  Files deleted:x n(say 8)(8 files are not actually deleted due to error in 1 file out of total 9 files to be deleted)
  But actually the files are not yet deleted as there is an error in a file.

Thank you for the report. I think this this worked in 0.6.3 (?) and is already fixed for 0.6.5. I hope to have 0.6.5 beta up soon for you to test. Also, I hope to write a unit test to prevent this bug from showing up again.
