In the system do you know if it is a SSD or HDD?

How did you move the files

Start
Windows Adminstrative Tools
Disk Cleanup
Bottom left select Clean Up System Files
Select the More Options Tab
Under System Restore and Shadow Copies click Clean Up...
Click Delete
Go back to the Disk Cleanup Tab
Put Checks in all the boxes
Click OK

May take several minutes depending on the amount of data it needs to go through.

Hi Bob and welcome to FpcH

In the Search box [ bottom left ] type C: ........then right click on the highlighted C: that show left of screen.
Then click on "Open File Location"
What information does it give on your hard drive relating to Free Space?
Something like 300GB free of 500GB

Complete the Disk Cleanup that Rustys suggests

Does the free space increase after the Disk Cleanup ?
