I was also puzzled by the apparent deletion of only the visible files.

I think that a specific user's public files would not be listed in an easily-accessible way due to privacy concerns. Understand that many users of Google Drive are not necessarily completely aware of all the items they've made public. Nevertheless, there are often situations when a user may want to make an item easily accessible to some people via a link (...

Update for 2019 and what if you only have view only on the file? Select the file and click remove. Having read only you won't delete the file itself but you will delete it from your view, your Shared with you folder, and your future searches.
