Good afternoon!

Dear friends! I ask for help as I don't understand that occurs.

Two days ago I have got the MacBook Air laptop (13-inch, Early 2015) (1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz), 128GB of PCIe-based flash storage).

I have updated the to macOS Sierra.

In the subsequent I have included all functions of optimization of storage. In real I see time that I have 58 gigabytes of the cleared.

How it is possible to see this cleared?

I ask for help, it is thankful in advance.

I put a photo.

I think that you are seeing the space called "purgeable"
Those are files that have not been accessed in a long time, and your system will remove the files to use that space, if it is needed.
AFAIK, the files are not deleted, but are moved to your iCloud storage, where they would be retrieved if any files are needed in the future.
