Deleting Indexes From Kibana Not Freed Any Disk Space On Hosts


i deleted some big indexes from Kibana but no disk space is freed on my elasticsearch hosts. So i found this Elasticsearch index deletion and disk space reclamation here and tried this:

curl -XPOST "https://:9200/_forcemerge?only_expunge_deletes=true"

and after 30mins later it outputed {"_shards":{"total":1941,"successful":1583,"failed":0} but still no freespace on my disks

Thanks in advance
