I had to run Photorec to recover some files, and they all have a padlock icon over the folder and will not let me delete them. How do I do this?

Go to terminal and type
gksudo nautilusThis is super user graphical mode. You should then be able to navigate to the locked directories and delete them - but be careful, remember you are operating in graphical mode with root privileges, so anything you delete will be gone forever.
