I agree with Tupually. I once factory reset the device and can still scan the data with Recuva. To make sure the data being erased permanently, you should first fill up with random data, then do a factory reset.

Factory reset is the easiest option. There is possibility that the deleted data you are showing is coming from the online backup that you have taken online backup using any email account or app.

I don't think the Factory reset is the best mothed to do , because it can not completely delete data or files from Andrioid , in the way , the data still store the unwanted data
