I would like to suggest that as an editor you cannot delete files that you do not own, even if you are an admin. That seems to be the problem at the moment.
When I delete a file that does not belong to me, it appears to the owner under Deleted and he knows nothing about this.
Maybe you could also add notifications to inform the owner about this.
Just a suggestion from a UX designer who stumbled across this
