What are you attempting to do here? files is a list of file names:
files = ['this.jpg', 'that.txt', 'other.pdf']
filename = 'that.txt'
What do you expect files['that.txt'] to do?
The problem has nothing to do with del, the problem is that you are

What does this print? In particular, what does the last part,
top_directory_file_list, print? Because the next error:
