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.
To delete unnecessary files manually, select Change how we free up space automatically. Under Free up space now, select Clean now.

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.
