comment Cant cd into a directory that exists that was created by bleach-bit
Did you try rebooting? Which file system? Which version of BleachBit? Old version of BleachBit (still in recent distributions of Ubuntu, maybe 14.10) create a folder with roughly a million empty files, which takes an extremely long time to delete on the standard Ubuntu file system.

comment Ubuntu doesn't boot after bleachbit
The symptoms and resolution seem unrelated to BleachBit, but if it is reproducible, please report a bug with the BleachBit version and options used

If the duplicate does not help, please report whether df -h shows whether you are out of disk space or df -i shows whether you are out of inodes?

comment Odd errors in bleach bit
If you file a bug report at bleachbit.sourceforge.net/help I can follow up, but I am guessing this has to do with overwriting free space and was fixed a while ago in BleachBit 1.2. (Ubuntu does not update BleachBit except with new releases of Ubuntu.)

comment How to get rid of more than one million ghostfiles?
BleachBit 1.0 notes this as a known issue, and you can see it by clicking the Help menu and clicking Release Notes. BleachBit 1.2 stopped making these files, and it is too bad Ubuntu does not update BleachBit except with a new release of Ubuntu. Everyone else who has had this problem resolved it by deleting the folder you described that took one hour. I wonder in your case if the used inodes cause any practical problems?

comment Strange folder in my home folder after a failed run of BleachBit
@PHPLearner I am hoping to soon release BleachBit version 1.1. For now, I noted the issue in the BleachBit 1.0 release notes. The time required to rm the temporary directory depends on the number of files, disk speed, etc., but 24 hours does seem slow. You can check progress by checking how many free inodes are available on the file system (df -i).

BleachBit version 1.1 should no longer leave these files behind. These are related to "wipe free disk space" option
