A bunch of ebooks are in .caltrash, but I don't see them restore recently deleted

I right clicked --> remove books --> restore recently deleted and that's empty but there's tons of books in .caltrash

Would I screw something up if I just went into the .caltrash folder and deleted them manually?

On linux.

It's safe to delete manually, at worst you lose restore functionality for the deleted files.

What ultimately happens to deleted content? Do those .caltrash folders ever get cleared out?

Does Calibre have something like Windows' DiskCleanup?

At the bottom of the form is the retention setting. 14 days is what it ships as.
You can also choose to clear now.
You cam make the window taller, so paging would be in bigger chunks
