    Why can't I delete files using Google Files?

    I have an old Moto E2 that I use only for listening to MP3 files in the car. I would like to delete some of these files using Google Files.

    I open Google Files and select the files I want to delete and tap the trash can and I get a message that I need to allow Files permission.

    OK, so I tap Allow, Continue.

    Google Files has permission to access files even on the SD card which is where these files are located.

    So why can't I delete them using Files?
    My smartphone is a lot smarter than I am.

    Yes, I am able to play them so apparently Files won't delete them. Or maybe it's simply that my phone is too old. I can delete them by connecting my phone to my PC and using File Explorer, so that's what I'll do.
