Ok try this

Code: [Select]
sudo  pcmanfm .local/share/Trash/files

a folder should open with timeshift inside if so right click & delete

did that work ?

Correction do not right click and delete (that's not an option) instead shift+delete on the keyboard

i can right click and move back into the trash but theres no actual 'delete' option. basically what it does is just add it back to the trash. :(

Glad you got the space back

Timeshift may not be such a good idea on a laptop with limited disc space I use it on my desktop with 320GB and I only keep 4 weekly snapshots so that's not a problem but if you had a fairly large external hard drive it wouldn't do any harm to use that and it wouldn't take up any of your disc space.

I've no idea where you 8GB has gone

Sorry for the confusion I caused I struggle with terminal commands sometimes so quite often find myself doing things the hard way
