How to remove "deleted" files on Google Drive?

The problem is this. The need to work to share with a friend quite large files. Use Google Drive. It created a shared folder, and each configured desktop client (this is important). Accordingly, I throw in a file folder, it automatically is poured on the disc, the friend sees him, picks up and removes that space is not occupied. I have this file also disappears, including from the local folder, all is well.

The problem is that these files go missing anywhere in Google Drive, but it is actually not removed and continue to take place. They can be seen only under quota ( which lists all the stored files in sequence space. And here there is just all these deleted files will lie quietly.

The parameter "location" of these files is absent. Ie they are not assigned any directory on the drive, so they cannot be seen. In the "history" section, they only have two item: created by then, so removed - then the something. But in spite of this, the file continues to take up space. I have such files 100Gb accumulated...

Periodically I go into the category of quotas and remove these "dead souls". But it's harder and harder to do. A lot of files, large of course can be seen immediately, but a lot of small mixed with plain files (under quotas, are all the files in a row without hierarchy at all), and choose the deleted difficult.

In General, looking for any way to solve the problem. Can a script look for such files, or some setting overlooked?.. Of course you can write in support of google, but I doubt that this bug (if a bug) will be the priority. Moreover, this situation prompts the user to purchase additional disk space.

I would be grateful for any clues. Thank you!

upd. In any case, I stress that these files are not in trash on google drive.

Deleted files are placed first in the basket ( ). So you can not search among all list in ( ), and go to the basket, press ctrl+a to select all files, right click mouse and delete.
If these files were in the basket - I wouldn't be asking this question.
Again - these files are not in the basket. Yes, I'm talking about the trash on google drive, not local. It is empty.
And of course I tried to empty the recycle bin, these files are not deleted.
All possible actions with all possible baskets I was doing. - Reinhold.Barro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:17
weird, I your answer checked, deleting a file from the trash he was missing from the list quota. - peter.Armstro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:20
may they not in your cart, AND YOUR COLLEAGUES? - Austin13 commented on June 14th 19 at 20:23
No , my colleague is also in the basket is empty. - Reinhold.Barro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:26
if you just delete the file and empty the recycle bin, then everything works as it should.
My situation is more "cunning" - a colleague deletes a file on the local computer, and gugulovska it removes the sync software. And it deletes the file whose owner is me.
In such a situation, the file disappears from everywhere, because he deleted the property "location". But the FAL lives. It can be seen in the quotas tab and search by name.

Post more details painted. - Reinhold.Barro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:29
, How to Google Drive single file into the quota? ? - Austin13 commented on June 14th 19 at 20:32
Alas, the answer to that question will not help me.
I have files which have been deleted months ago and they still occupy the place. - Reinhold.Barro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:35

and even better to use Hiubic without all these problems, but the speed can be smaller
And what is better? There is confidence that there will not be any similar problems?
Need to share fairly large files (2-15 GB), Preferably with a desktop client for win and mac. - Reinhold.Barro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:19
it is sufficient to remove the host - peter.Armstro commented on June 14th 19 at 20:22
