Missing Google Drive space

I found Google Drive to be reporting that I was using about 100GB more storage than I was actually using, I checked this by seeing how large the Drive folder on my machine is. Having recently done a Google Takeaway backup of my Google data I figured it was something to do with that. Having moved my Google Takeaway off of Drive onto a USB drive locked in a safe I had forgotten that Google kindly moves a copy of the moved (deleted from Drive so far as Google is concerned) into the Google Drive Bin. Having been to empty the Bin Google is now reporting the correct amount of space as being used.
