    Check the wp-content/uploads/wpcf7_captcha folder. I guess you'll see tons of files there. Once try clearing the files manually.

    I figured out this problem. I know this is an old post, but I thought you might want to update the plugin so it won't be a problem again. In the plugin you do a chg_mod on the file to 0444 which is read only but unlink doesn't seem to want to delete a read only file. Therefore, if you chg_mod to 0777, you won't have a problem.

    In my hack on your plugin, I set the original file_mode to 0777 for newly written files and then also did the chg_mod 0777 on each file before delete in the remove and cleanup functions.

    I hope you fix this bug in your plugin.

    I think this is related to this problem...?

    Warning: unlink(D:/srv/htdocs/websites/********/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-captcha/tmp/1985405737.png) [function.unlink]: Permission denied in D:\srv\htdocs\websites\***********\wp-content\plugins\really-simple-captcha\really-simple-captcha.php on line 225

    I have come across a couple of hacks so the msg does not appear but not sure if these will lead to a ddos style problem as suggested in another post as masses of objects are created so I am reluctant to make hacks, please fix!
