18GB of storage space on SSD has vanished without trace
This picture best explains the issue:
- I have "show hidden files and folders" enabled and "hide protected OS files" disabled.
Just a few hours ago this issue was not around. I had about 55-60GB left the last time I checked today. I then transfered 20GB of data over to my Steam directory, launched Steam so it updated my games into it's Library, used Driver Cleaner to remove leftover NVIDIA drivers from a previous uninstall, and then restarted.
When the computer started up I noticed I was missing the space, but the Steam folder was still the same size (~20GB) and nothing seemed out of place. That is when I decided to look at the file properties and noticed the discrepancy.
What is the issue here?

It's a coincidence heh, I was actually short only 18.5GB but ended up deleting some random installation files. The 1.5GB saved from that adjusted the same from each reading so I didn't mention it.
As for other things I didn't mention, I used CCleaner as well and it's not finding more than a few hundred MB.
How do restores work? I recently changed it to use a lot more space as I was installing dozens of things... could it be the culprit?
EDIT: Holy smokes 37 restore points are saved...
