couldn't delete public documents from my account

As you all know I can't have in my free account more than 10 private documents. That's okay, but now I have the following problem. This is intended to illustrate the image below.

From the displayed 8 (/ of 10) documents are a total of 5 document from me. Where the blue marked properties are not mine, but are apparently counted as private. But this object I can not delete. They still occupy so 3 of 10 private documents.

You can I remove this object from my private account.

regards Franz

    You cannot delete documents that you do not own.  You are shared into these documents from other users.  You can remove yourself from the share by right-clicking on the document and choosing the appropriate option.

    Hi @franz_balleis127. You are running into an accounting bug that we are in the process of fixing. I've recalculated your document count. Your private document count went from 8 to 4. Sorry for the annoyance.
