    Why does Apps and Features say it’s taking up more storage than the sum of the apps?

    I’m trying to make room on my computer and noticed that Apps and Features in storage settings says it takes up 134GB. I went through all the apps to try and figure out how the heck that happened and noticed that:

    1) there are a bunch of apps that don’t list a storage size beside them (this includes things from Epson, Dropbox, Norton Security, Spotify, Steam, etc). I also uninstalled Spotify to see how much it would make a difference and nothing changed, even after
    a restart.

    2) if I add up everything manually, including my best estimates for these files without the storage size listed, I come at most to 50GB. Are there other apps in this section that aren’t shown or why would this be happening?

  3. Apps & Features taking up 100GB of Disk Space

    Hi Microsoft Community,

    I have a Surface Laptop that has 120 GB of disk space, and of late notice that Apps & Features has taken up about 100GB of my disk space. When referring to it through Systems/Storage - it shows that App & Features has taken up 100GB, but in referring to
    the list of apps listed, there's at most 30GB. What's puzzling is there about 70GB that I am not able to find which app is taking up all that disk space. Have done all the disk/system cleanup and the space wouldn't clear.

    Appreciate any advise. Thanks

    STORAGE , APPS & FEATURES

    Ayush,

    Instead of Storage sense, please try using Treesize which would tell you the exact picture of how Windows is taking up the data.

    Apps and features is a generalized sort of thing tbh(it includes a lot of things else as well, even if it does not fit into the category 'apps' and 'features').
