Ian Springer created IO-629:
-------------------------------

             Summary: FileUtils#forceDelete should use Files#delete rather than File#delete
so exception messages includes reason for failure
                 Key: IO-629
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-629
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ian Springer


>From File#delete Javadoc:
{noformat}
<p> Note that the {@link java.nio.file.Files} class defines the {@link java.nio.file.Files#delete(Path)
delete} method to throw an {@link IOException} when a file cannot be deleted. This is useful
for error reporting and to diagnose why a file cannot be deleted.

 This change is possible now that 2.6 requires Java 7.
