Did you select Gigantic?

Customer Replay

It's still working on it ...

Oh, that's okay.
You may have to wait a few minutes for File Explorer to search your whole drive. Wait until the green status bar finishes filling the top.

  • Turn on Storage sense to have Windows delete unnecessary files automatically.

Able to free up 9.53 mb

In this case, I'd recommend moving files to another drive.
Here's how to do that:

  1. Connect your removable media to your device.
  2. Open File Explorer from the taskbar and find the files you want to move.
  3. Select the files, go to the Home tab, and then select Move to > Choose a location.
  4. Select your removable media from the location list, and then select Move.
