Can't permanently delete my files

Can't permanently delete my files

New member | Level 2

I uploaded some files in a shared folder a while ago, deleted them out of the shared folder and am trying to permanently delete them and it is telling me to "ask the owner to help you delete these files". I AM the owner of the files. I am the one who uploaded them. Please help me figure out how to get rid of these files as they are taking up all my space. Thanks for your help!

Deleted files don't take up space in your account, so permanently deleting them won't gain you anything.
