- Which method you've used to root your device?
- Did you use the app to Check root?

Usually, there are advanced options in the file explorers to gain root in them.
Anyway, you shouldn't have any issues deleting your own files. Maybe you are trying to delete files which are on a read only mount (you need to switch to R/W).
