Actually, your Windows C drive is getting filled up every time:

1) you access the Internet -- where do you think all the graphics files are getting written?

2) you do a Windows Update -- and since these are FORCED on you, and they come out every week, your drive is getting filled with them.

 

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:

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
