Check that the files don’t have , by mistake, a blank space or two after the name. Try using command prompt ( make sure you know the folder and file path. See

You can also try to reset the bin. Open CMD (admin) and type RD /S /Q C:\$Recycle.bin and press enter. You might need to right click the desktop and select refresh. Open the bin to see if the ghost files are gone.
