Note: Removed files you own are moved to Trash in Drive and still count towards your total storage until you permanently delete them on the web.
On the web: Select the files or folders you want to remove and click.
Delete files permanently: To permanently delete a file when you’re in Trash, select the file and click delete forever. To permanently delete all your Trash files, clickand select Empty Trash.
On your computer: Just select the files or folders you want to remove and delete them as you would any other file on your computer.
