    You can delete that folder by gaining root privileges but you must be very careful.
    Code:
    su -
    rm -rf /home/xelloss/.local/share/Trash/files/*
    Execute above command carefully. rm -rf is a fatal code if you execute it as root.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
