I was deleting a git repo. I first cloned it and then did npm i to install the dependencies.

But, then soon after installation completed I had to delete the repo folder. I selected the folder and did Shift+DEL.

Here is what it shows while deleting. This screenshot was taken while deleting is still in progress.

Is this a bug or is it fine?

It has crossed around 11k files now, so I clicked the cancel button.

Edit: This folder is stored on my Local Disk.


Turns out the project was still live with a SASS compiler watch command. So as I deleted files maybe it kept compiling more files. I closed the terminal window and then deleted it.

Why did this happen?
