Plex not deleting media

I recently noticed that none of the movies I deleted from my library via the Windows Plex app are removed from disk. I have "Allow media deletion" enabled in Server Settings. Is there something different about how the app handles deletions?

    Here's a curve ball...it seems at times, the actual movie file IS deleted, but not always.

    ALWAYS, the folder and meta data is never deleted.
