Have you updated the parity after deleting the files?

Deleted files are usually stay in the hidden flxr folder of each drive until the parity update is ran.

Just hijack the drive by giving it a drive letter. Goto control panel and enable viewing hidden folders. Copy the files out of the flxr folder and place them somewhere else. Remove the drive letter. Put the files back into the pool.

Aah. Yea you had to enable FlexRAID's recycle bin for that. If your parity was updated before the file deletions, you can restore your data from the parity.

So your parity wasn't up-to-date before the deletions occurred?
