Windows 7: A 16 GB CSC vanishing upon changing ownership

A 16 GB CSC vanishing upon changing ownership

Hi , i am trying to trim down a windows installation in order to move it to another partition , while wondering around i discovered a 16 GB folder called CSC within this installation , researched that and had a vague idea of either those are cached network files or cached internet files made available offline . now honestly i didnt care much to keep those , while searching around means to clean them i found a thread here that suggested taking ownership of the folder then deleting it , followed the steps only with one odd outcome ..
after gaining access to the folder it now reports 68kb worth of files (i haven't deleted anything , just took ownership) what is sad though is that nothing was reduced in partition size , so my question , is this Windows\CSC folder yet one of those virtual folders that have yet another path i should follow within the system to lose those 16 GB or might have those 16 GBs been miss-reported in first place or what's the case here ?
