Question (Yeah, it's long):
So before I start telling my "story" I'd first like to warn you that this is really hard to explain for me so please don't be angry.
Yesterday I got myself a 32 GB Micro sdcard for my phone, previously I had a 8 GB one.
I had partitioned my old card so I could link apps to my sd card using Link2SD, so before using my new SD Card I first had to partition it.
After countless of hours I finally managed to partition it correctly with AParted. I had made a backup with CWM because I was told it would backup my 2nd partition aswell.
So I tried to use the advanced restore option in CWM to restore my apps that were linked. But this never worked.
This wasn't that big of a problem, the only thing I had to do is reinstall a couple of apps. Too bad for me my phone still thought the apps were there, while they WEREN'T.
Let's call these app "Ghost" apps to make it easy.
I found out that these "Ghost" apps could only be seen under the "apps" section under "storage". NO other app could see them.
When trying to reinstall a "Ghost" app via the play store or other sources my device said it has insufficient memory. For example I tried to reinstall soundcloud, but it said I had insufficient memory.
So I went to back to my apps and deleted the "Ghost" version of soundcloud. After I did this I was able to reinstall soundcloud. And this happened to all the apps.
Now here is where we meet our problem. I also linked the system apps GMail and Google Chrome to my old sd Card, so now they were "Ghosted" aswell.
But you can't uninstall system apps via the "apps" menu. This is where I got stuck, I literally tried almost EVERY system app remover/ file manager to try and remove the apps manually or via an app.
Now finally here is my question:
Is there any way for me to remove the "Ghost" Chrome and Gmail OR reinstall them via another way? I've searched on the internet for hours for a similar problem but couldn't find anyone.
I'm kind of new in the advanced Android world, but I do know a thing or two.
I hope you will be able to answer my Question!
Now here are some details:
Samsung Xcover 2 (GT-S7710)
Yes, my phone is rooted
No I'm running the stock version for now.
Ask me for more info if needed
Here are some screenshots from the "Ghost" apps:

Hope this is enough information, Thanks in advance!
Please do Note I do not have GMail on my phone right now, so it might take me a bit longer to answer any questions or test possible solutions.
