Do you want to delete all the images from the directory ?

By the way, fi.Delete() --> which file do you want to delete, because it's outside the loop. It will always contain the latest file :)

thank Dhaest, no it is inside the loop but forget to copy the last char }.

You can try the following. Add the following items behind con.Close();
(probably one of those will block you)
imageSampleData  = null;
cmd = null;
