When I try to delete several files some are deleted and some are not. The names are correct, else I wouldn't be able to read the content of the file first. What could be the reason some files cannot be deleted. (Files are not read-only).

Some operating systems do not allow you to delete a file which is held open by another application (or even the same app). Delete may also fail if you do not have sufficient permission to delete file(s) in question.
