It may be literally correct, but I was surprised and confused by this
question. I wasn't quite sure whether it was doing just what you
describe, or whether it had gone insane and was offering to delete 8
files at random. IIRC, it didn't tell me which 8 files it wanted to
delete, which didn't help either.
