    Try using SpaceSniffer, looks like TreeSize can't even see it. You'll most likely need to open it as admin.

    Could you clear your System Restore Points, please?

    I did and it cleared about 1.9gigs, and those are stored in sys info folder right?

    I had checked that before posting the thread

    Hmm...

    Is this a cloned system or did you install W10 from scratch?

    I installed it from scratch( maybe 6 months back), when I changed to a new SSD

    Could you make a complete, restorable and verifiable backup of the entire drive?
    Then maybe you can delete that file.

    If there is a problem you can restore the image. Use Macrium Reflect Free.

    I just noticed that all 4 utilities are reporting completely disparate numbers for disk usage. WinDir says 90.8, TreeSize says 86/79, Disks says 83.2 and SS says 81.8.
