Have you installed an automatic backup sort of thing? So, it is normal...But also, sometimes Windows will write restore point in the background or if plenty of heavy files and not so fast write disk cache...maybe you have tried to remove it too quickly. And when you tried the second time it should remove, that's mean it got times to save all data it needs.
