The disk usage isn't quite what it appears. With the NTFS file system folder disk usage numbers are at best only an approximation. NTFS has long had the feature where a single copy of a file can appear in multiple folders. This feature wasn't used in Windows until Vista but is now used extensively in the winsxs folder. This leads to quite a bit of double counting of files. There are numerous other complications as well.
