Today I deleted more than 40 gb worth of files but it looks like only about 20gb worth of space was actually liberated.

will I eventually see this freed space?

thank you

We’re any of those photos? If so, you won’t recover the space until you delete the photos in the “Recently Deleted “ folder.

Otherwise, maybe reboot the iPad.

If you go to Settings>General>iPad Storage and check the available space, does it agree with the available space shown in Settings>General>About?
