    Thanks @Bree downloading TreeSize
    You need to run it as administrator to see inside WindowsApps and other protected folders (like 'System Volume Information' where the restore points are stored). The easiest way is to tick 'always start this app as administrator' in TreeSize > Options.

    I believe that if you have a Macrium image you can always mount it and browse the files that way.
