Do we really need to deleting "hidden-file" as explicitly ?
I'm afraid it would be the worst things, since might the user (not the
programmer) didn't know, this is the part of system or not.

Well, actually, By the result is enough since, the user might only
want to know, is process completed or not.
If failed, they can be check manually which file failed to be deleted.
