Question Why is my second drive showing a vastly different amount of free space compared to what is stored there?

So, I seem to be missing around 70GB from my 256GB SSD. In windows it shows that I have 132 GB free of 232GB meaning it thinks I've used up 100GB of space.

However, I've only got a couple of games on there and WinDirStat (as well as other tools like Disk Analyzer Personal) show that I've only used 34.4GB of space. So I should have around 200GB of space free.

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me because I am so confused!

Thanks in advance!

Ah thank you so much both of you. I had hidden files showing in Windows Explorer but not WinDirStat. It turns out it's all the games downloaded through the Xbox App accumulating to around 60GB.

Thanks again!
