My space is not updating after deleting 2 files. Why is that?

Level 4

I have deleted 2 large files( 1 was photos). I am only backing up 2 websites. Their size is 1.1 MB. Size of Apps is indicated at 2.01GB same as before I deleted the other files. Is some reason it is not updating the space?

The issue is, as you've said, the Apps folder. 

They are using up your space - at a guess its the backup of your website.

You'll need to look in to the apps to see if you can delete some old backups if they have them.
