Provisioning type -> Reclaimable Space?

I recently installed the new 8.1 CMC and noticed that I now have additional information under the Provisioning Type tab on Volume Use. I have several Full provisioned volumes that are reporting a fairly sizable amount of reclaimable space.

Since I'm basically learning this as I go I rely heavily on the Help feature of the app, and was unable to glean any explanation on what that means, and more importantly, how one can reclaim the space, if possible.

Prior administrators have set up remote copies (snapshots) to other clusters, so I'm not sure if they are referencing that space or not.

Any help would be appreciated!

That is the space you'd reclaim if you changed those volumes to be thin provisioned.
