Even though you deleted the physical files EV stills have a reference for the items in the database.  I would recommend working with Support to have them help you clean this up.  You should be able to find the archive the items belong to and clean it up properly.

Hi mate,

As Tony mentioned, you can call support to sort this out.

Or you can use the EVSVR tool to remove the DB references for the deleted items, then you should be able to delete the vault store partiotion.
