Weird Windows problem

Greetings

I installed Windows 10 about a year ago on my pc, clean installed it with formatting the SSD, and all my programs I have on a seperate SSD. Still the C-drive was getting more and more full, no idea how but I thought that maybe it was temporary update files for Windows so I left it alone. It came to the point today where I had another update for Windows 10 again and it said I don't have enough space available on the C-drive, so I open Disk Clean-up (that option was given) and then something weird showed up. Apparently I have 3.99TB of Windows Update Clean-up files that can be removed with the Disk Clean-up, but my SSD is only 120GB (Programs SSD also 120GB). Where does the Disk Clean-up program get the other 3.8TB of? Or is it just a bug and it's not showing the correct values?
Also does anyone know how it comes that my C-drive gets full? I only installed Windows/Graphics drivers/necessairy drivers on C, all the rest (games and programs and data) are on other drives so I'm quite confused... 

If anyone could help me, that'd be greatly appreciated!

I know this sounds stupid but have you cleared the recycling bin? I was low on space for months and it took me all that time to realise the recycling bin was taking up all that space!

seems like a glitch. Just perform the clean up and should be fine.

could be restore points as well. I was wondering why I lost so much space on my HDD to find out that I have literally 300 GB of system restores. You can also place a limit on system restores
