In explorer, If I select a large number of files/folders in explorer and hit 'delete,' it will delete files until it encounters an in-use file. If this happens, it brings up an 'error' dialog and stops deleting altogether - forcing you to either find/close the program that has the file handle or select everything but that file and try again, hoping that some other file won't also be in use.

Is there a way to get it to just ignore in-use files (leave them there) and continue trying to delete everything else?
