    You've almost certainly bee ignoring the space on the 1TB drive, and everything is running off the 250GB SSD.

    However, a screencap of your Disk Management window would clear up any question on this.

  2. Just download and install WinDirStat: https://www.fosshub.com/WinDirStat.html
    This is basically a vastly superior folder "properties" option of Explorer.
    Run it and select a drive and you'll very quickly find out where all your space is being used.

  4. Run WinDirStat again, but with only the C drive selected. And Run as Administrator.

    Currently, it looks like you just have too much junk on that 250GB SSD.

    Right click on the WinDirStat icon, and select Run as Adminstrator.

    However...your issue is simple.
    Over 1/2 of your 250GB SSD is taken up with .mkv and .mp4 files. 160GB.
    Videos.

    Move those off to the 1TB HDD. That will fix your issue.
