you can skip trash

hdfs dfs -rm -r -skipTrash

and need not worry about file size limit. http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-common/FileSystemShell.html

Can you send what is the error that you getting with this delete? Unless quotas are set, you should not see any issues with 'Trash' going in.
