I'm having a problem here. I just encrypted my home holder successfully and all the different tutorials that I read say that the final step is to delete the backup home folder that was created:

It wont let me delete it by right clicking and using the drop menu. What can I do? I tryed:

sudo rm -rf /home/user.random

But it doesn't seem to work. Can someone plz help me. Thx
