What is your Omen ? Looks like you store everything on C: I believe it has second HDD (may be 😧 drive). Please set 😧 as your default storage for user data/files.

In addition to changing your default storage location so you drive does not continue to fill up, here are some things you can do to recover some of the disk space:

Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:

In addition, I have found the utility Cleanmgr+ to have LOTS of options for removing Windows junk, including log files. I use it practically every day. You can get it from here: https://www.getclone.app/download/category/11-cleanmgr

Also, there is a freeware app known as Wise Disk Cleaner. I use it every day to get rid of junk files: https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-disk-cleaner.html
