For everything related to OS operations, use the 'os' library: https://docs.python.org/3/library/os.html For running something between intervals, use the function 'sleep' from the 'time' library: https://docs.python.org/3/library/time.html?highlight=sleep#time.sleep

you can just try: iterate over the entire folder and on error pass the file. since there are always files that cant be deleted from temp. modules needed: os and time
