Actually Removing Files

Hello there!
I have a question about the file plugin and more specifically about file.removeRecursively().
I have managed to use it successfully, as in, it resolves properly and when I navigate to my base app folder with my file explorer app it is no longer there. However, whenever I navigate to the same folder through my pc I can see all the “deleted” folders and their files which are, of course, broken. I have already tried to remove each file with file.removeFile() and then the Dir itself with file.removeDir() but the result is exactly the same. Why is this happening?
