Cannot Permanently Delete Data

I have used the Documents app for some time now, but just recently became aware of the fact that I cannot permanently delete data I have removed from the app via the in app deletion tools. I have done the initial deletion, and then the secondary “permanent” deletion, but the data itself still remains somewhere in the iPad.
Here is an example of what I mean. Recently I needed more space on my iPad. I checked how much storage the Documents app was taking up, noting the total being used was 6.98 gigs. After deleting several hundred megs worth of files (using the two step deletion process), I checked the storage situation again. The total storage being used by the app had increased to 7.05 gigs. (I also previously removed the Documents folder from the iOS Files app.)
In short, I am being robbed of storage by the app. I don’t appreciate being robbed.
Of course I could try and fully delete the app and see if that would solve my woes, but why should I have to? Why does the two step delete function not actually delete the files I want to delete? Uninstalling and reinstalling would mean I would have to move all my information back over and reorganize it as well. Why should I have to do that instead of simply being able to delete my files permanently?

UPD. We've fixed this issue, can you please update to the latest version of Documents and let us know if the app size is still calculated incorrectly? Thank you.

Hello Ellis! We are really sorry to hear about this, can you please contact our support team at so we can troubleshoot the issue? In the meantime, please try restarting the device. This might help as the cache clearing mechanism is also managed by the system. Thanks, Alexandra

2 videos to camera roll & downloading issues

I’m not sure if maybe I haven’t figured it out yet but so far to my knowledge I can’t save only one video to my camera roll, I have to go through a process in which I have to copy the video to my iCloud, go allll the way over to my files app & click to save that one video because I have to save at least 2 videos to my camera roll if I only use this app. It’s frustrating because there’s videos I don’t want to save but end up saving just so I could download one. I also use this app to download twitter videos (mainly) & there are occasions I download a twitter video, it’s downloaded, shows a preview photo & everything but I come back a couple hours later & it says the file can not be played so that entire video is gone & I can’t find it again. It’s again very frustrating & confusing. But it’s a very useful app other than those problems I pointed out. If it’s a problem on my part I’d love to get feedback on how to fix it so I can change my review to 5 stars!

Love it, but problem of late

I wrote a review and gave 3 stars that I will leave intact in case someone else has the same problem I had. I was able to fix the issue myself with a soft reboot of my iPad Pro. I saw a review on another app that had an issue that was fixed this way so thought I would try it. It worked! In love with this app!

This has been a WONDERFUL app, but in the last few days some of my PDF files are EMPTY! Working on an iPad Pro with everything updated. Readdle’s PDF Converter working great, but when I choose to open in Documents it’s EMPTY! Will open as a good PDF file just fine in Google Drive.I know you guys can fix this quickly. This is the FIRST problem I’ve had after years of using your app on my iPads. Ready to give 5 stars again as soon as it’s fixed. You guys have ALWAYS had a great app here ... it’s ALWAYS been my “go to” PDF app even with downloading and testing many others.
