Losing Z10 Storage Capacity / Free Space not increasing after file deletion in BB Link?

If anyone has tried adding and removing items to the z10 via blackberry link and noticed that once items are deleted the space that should be freed up completely disappears from BB link.... don't panic. I checked on my phone and the storage space is still free 11.4GB But on BB Link I now only show 3.9GB free space so I cannot add all the files that I want to. I restarted the phone. No change. I restarted BB Link and it now shows all my free space - obviously just a minor bug.

I had read something about this else where so I thought i'd share my findings as it looks like I'm not the only one and someone may have a panic attack.

I uploaded around 7gb of mp3 data that i later deleted. My free space stayed at 3.9gb and did not increase but my overall space went down to around 4gb showing 3 photos and a movie trailer as my only stored items.
