If this is btrfs, then i had this same problem (maybe a year ago)
I have to look in the forum to find my solution
Please have a look at:
1st step of solution:
from live usb
DO not use GUI to solve this mess ! (do everything in a terminal-window)
mount the filesystem to /mnt
you may use
mcif you want
create a new folder
/mnt/home/user2(with same user and permission as “user”
move (!) all directories and files (without the bad ones)
Maybe 6 months later I managed to delete those files. (Because the thread had been closed, i could not add my last solution) So I can’t remember exactly how i deleted them Since they are size 0, they shouldn’t hurt.
