Mailbox Database Exchange 2010

We were having disk space problems so I configured a synology disk station as an iSCSI device and created a volume in windows.
To this new volume I moved a couple of large mailboxes, the disk station shows the right amount of disk space used but the original Exchange database hasn't changed size, does it take time or do I need to do something else.

no errors were reported on the move and those mailboxes work fine.

Many thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It just takes time, because the mailbox database utilities have to run to compress the database size (i.e., remove the white space left by moving the mailboxes).
