Well, of course you can, they will probably be reported missing
afterwards. But why would you want to delete them in the first place?

Please explain why someone would ever want to uncheck a file during an
update. Excluding folders from an update is done another way.

Check for modifications shows only local changes. To see what's changed
in the repository, you'll have to click "Check repository".

How would that be helpful? What's the use case?
