[File Manager] Deleting files on SD card does not free up space on SD card

I'm facing this issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyS7/comments/5dpuqi/deleting_files_on_sd_card_does_not_free_up_space/

when I delete a big folder, it's not deleted, but moved in "system data" instead, I remove the card, I plug it in my pc and my pc says that the device has to be checked for errors, it runs the check and then creates a folder named found.000, if I delete this, the free space is regained! I've already formatted my sd card, same issue happened!

I've got a similar 1gb of data in internal too but this should be the mi cloud backup?
is it stored locally?
how can I delete it?
(I'm root)

I noticed the same thing happens when I delete a large file from the internal storage,
is this a nougat feature or a miui one?
any way I can force android to delete these files instantly instead of moving them to system data
and maybe deleting after reboot?
