        I have too many duplicates and when I click on the box's and then delete, I get a message saying some files were not deleted.

well it appears that most if not all were not deleted. Does anyone have an idea why this is happening?

You have asked this question at least once each year since 2018, this is now your fourth thread with the same question.
In fact it's the only question that you have ever asked.

The answer is still the same. (It will not change).

The files are probably not being deleted because they are system files, and either in use or protected.

You should not delete duplicate system files, the duplicates are often needed in more than one place, and deleting them may cause things to stop working.

Duplicate finder should normally only be used to find duplicates of your pictures, videos, music files, documents, etc. and remove any unwanted ones.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
