Hi,
Just like the picture shows, I don't think they take up too much storage usage, but some temporary files, or saved pictures, documents and so on may take up a lot.
I consider that you could use some tools like Treesize Free or WinDir Statto check. They'll show you what's taking up your disk capacity. Then you could delete those useless files.
Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
Best Regards,
Carl

Treesize Free, this tool listed all the files that File Explorer not showing. It's the SQL SERVER LOGS, that takes 1TB storage.
Now I can delete them from the software UI.
Thanks for your advice, really helpful!

treesize was real useful .In my case I found the issue with data file.Even though I had deleted schemas from the studio ,all of them were still holding all the space in data.Deleted all of them through cmd
