QUESTION   I've deleted a lot of Workplace folders and/or files. When will the disk space on my PC be freed up?

ANSWER  In 12 hours.

In order to facilitate high-speed moves of data from one location to another (which is essentially deleting it from one location and adding it to a different one) and rapid recovery from accidental deletions, Workplace retains your deleted data on your device for a period of time. Consequently, it will take 12 hours to free up the disk space on your deice that is consumed by deleted Workplace items. Please be patient; the data retention mechanism exists to ensure a generally faster Workplace experience.

NOTE  It is safe to manually empty the hidden trash folder in the Workplace folder to free up space immediately.
