Question What in the world just happend?

I went to delete a folder containing 3GB of old music. It said the folder was to big to go in the recycle bin and asked me if I wanted to permanently delete the folder so I said yes. Here's the crazy part... I go to check the space on my HDD and I had less free space than before! Before deletion, I had 5.8GB of free space and after deletion I now have 3GB of free space. The folder contained 2.8 GB of music... what in the world happened? I'm so confused right now.

if you have a small HD i wouldnt bother using the recycle bin as all that happens in data you "delete" gets sent to the recycle bin
