    What- there's more than one....

    By way of a random thought if not already suggested, have you tried running Storage Sense?

    Perhaps of interest:

    How come on settings -> system -> Storage I have a completely different screen?
    Why isn't System & Reserved listed?
    I'm running 10 Pro 20H2 (Build 19042.928)

    Also, in Device Manager expand Disk Drives and look at or post the make and model of the drive, usually the number gives a clue to its supposed size.

    I installed KB5001391 to update to 10 Pro 20H2 (Build 19042.964).
    hit " Show more categories"

    That's rather the point.. I've found examples where it's very large- but not reported there as larger than the physical disk.
    Best bet- some odd bug.

    locked, can you please run a check disk?

    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk c: /f
    It will say your disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next start = yes
    Restart
    Pay attention on the results, specially bad blocks, bad clusters, bad sectors etc

    The SSD from device manager is HFM512GDGTNI-82A0A - looks like an SK Hynix drive

    HFM512GDGTNI-82A0A at DuckDuckGo

    I've used a lot of Hynix memory modules, haven't come across one of their SSD drives yet. I've worked with a lot of SATA drives both electromechanical and Solid State but not yet with NVMe or eMMC.

    I failed to give the reason for my request on the make/model, have seen issues mentioned about fake drives, both SSD and USB Thumb drives being mismarked as to true capacity.
