System and Reserved Files Are Taking Too Much Space

My 500 GB SSD only had 500 MB available. Explorer displays 466 GB of consumed space, whereas WinDirStat only displays 165 GB. After running SFC, all of the system files appear to be in order. Is there a method to reduce the system and reserved files to a manageable size without reinstalling everything? At the moment, 350GB of System and Reserved files are displayed.
