Seems like
¤ you are not the owner and these are ‘shared’ file/s, folder
and
¤ you are trying it on the web interface.

This seems to be known issue if above two are right.
Refreshing the page after ‘deleting’, brings them back.

For office files, PDFs.. you may try to ‘open’ the file/s and then delete if from the menu options.
.
Or,
you could go to the ‘shared with me’ link/option on the left pane and then ‘file by file’ delete them and then the folder.
.
Or, you could “drag” the file/s one at a time to recycle bin/trash.
.
or, use the “remove” option or the delete icon, after selecting the file (if not ‘opening’ them).
.
check and report if any of these work for you.

It’s a shared folder; the owner is not you, you just have view permission; it won’t occupy your drive space, so chill;

that… is not the point though.
even after revising everything twice and scoring high on the group mock test
again and again seeing this is giving anxiety. wink

better to get rid of it, BEFORE it becomes a full blown ‘panic attack’.

can try https://www.guidingtech.com/fix-google-drive-wont-delete-files-issue/ whatever it takes. biggrin

at-least you could have tried (some of the options suggested) and then commented.
Even the link i gave above has proper guide and various methods.

otherwise, give me toungueout up to 20paise per file (10paisa for office files), i will do it for you.

just give me 24hours max (after giving your logon credentials and access to the account😁)

check in your connected apps/sites to see whether you have given permission to some app/site related to this folder.

How, if at all, would it matter (assuming it is even possible to do so when one is not even the owner …nor has much of those rights assigned by the owner)?

and in so far as i recollect https://myaccount.google.com/permissions this “app permissions” is only about the ‘Google authenticated login’ feature on third party sites.
So, is there something else too (like something intrinsic to Google cloud storage/Drive)?
if so, then maybe i am unawares😔.

Edit, upload & create content in your Google Account: In addition to seeing your basic profile and some info in your account, some sites or apps may ask for permission to do even more in your Google Account. This may include editing, uploading, or creating content. For example, a film editing app may edit your video and upload it to your YouTube channel, or an event planning app may create events on your Google Calendar, with your permission.

Some “movie sharing” sites do this to bypass google monitoring of a single drive acc sharing a lot of video files with many downloads so this way downloads are distributed to many users drive so less chances of getting detected.

Ahh¡!
Being ignorant is blissful indeed.

appreciate those insights, will have a look at it and try to learn more. (having bliss isn’t everything😉 if one cannot educate oneself… in the ways of the world).

Actually this is nothing, all those privacy features of incognito browsers,vpn & tor is also nothing much. smile Never think you can outsmart govt/agencies, it all depends on how much it is worth to track you down. Just keep this simple rule in mind, if you are running along with a fellow to save yourself from a tiger than you don’t need to run faster than the tiger(which is impossible anyway for a person), you just need to run faster than the fellow beside you. In short, you just need to be less ignorant than the fellow next to you so he will get caught while posting some cartoon meme on some big leader using some fake facebook id in incognito mode browser while you forward the same cartoon using a browser on a remote server located in EU using a fake facebook id you created using same browser while using a paid vpn located in EU with no tension. smile

while i do not quite grasp how all this fits into the current discussion at hand (about his Google cloud storage)… i AM pretty aware of it.

in-fact Silk Road https://google.com/search?q=silk+roa...st got busted via simple Google queries and digging around old forums where Ulbricht had blabbered ON about his dreams to start a marketplace of the sorts.

this ‘lead’ was from a side-lined agent/ officer who simply kept digging on his own.

but later when he went back to the agency that he found few old posts from a “so and so” user at few forums, the main team immediately concurred that the same username had cropped up in their ‘fake’ narcotic purchase deal on an onion site too.

and it was eventually traced to Ulbricht… who was trapped when he had carried his laptop🤦🏻‍♂ (goldmine for FBI) to the library or whatever… to use the public wi-fi (than to use his own connection).


have known it for long, like your rightly put, that what really matters is…. HOW MUCH they are ready to sniff and keep hot on the chase.

i always knew that TOR network and Firefox are anything but 100% fool-proof.
even if, at times, they are tad better than the absolute s💩it that… practically all Chromium based browsers are.

had Netscape survived and Javascript been never born.. the ecosystem for safe or sensitive browsing been VERY different.

but alas! it wasn’t meant to be😔.
