    Just deleted around 50GB but my hard drive didn't reflect the space change. Then in Disk Utility I see this. Is this a new feature brought in for El Capitan (which I've never used) or is this something new for Sierra?

    Oh and if it's a known 'feature' how do I purge this to get the space back?
