    Probably you have 4GB of superseded updates as well.

    try

    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

    Pay attention, after that command you can't uninstall any older update

    I had the opposite odd phenomenon of System Restore Points showing as being 10Mb.

    Nothing beats the effectiveness and accuracy of XP in displaying file size. Under W10 you can't even see directly the size of folders, as has already been discussed.

    Thanks to everyone who replied.

    @T-S: I ran the dism command and that seems to have straightened everything out. At this point, I don't care about uninstalling any updates, since I was already planning to back up my files and do a clean install once the Christmas holidays have passed.

    Keep in mind that you will see all the freed space only after a reboot
