OS needs to be left on the C: Drive which really need 20% free to work well.

To save space on C: you need to move your data files such as documents pictures and vies etc to the HDD. See here on how to move user folders

Always useful to use something like CCleaner free to remove junk files plus you can delete restore points (last one grayed out for safety) with it as well.

Re-save the Games. This time select "Save As" and specify the Drive you wish to save them on.

the SSHD will only have a small amount of room in solid sate your better off leaving the OS on a the proper 117 SSD

You have had a proper answer in FruitBat's 13.59 post.

Leave your operating system on the SSD and move all your personal folders to the HDD. If you use the method shown then Windows will automatically use them as default.

Running Games from an External Drive is going to , unnecessarily, slow things down.

The usual setup is to have an SSD as the C Drive, holding the OS and Working Software, and a larger Hard Drive as the holder of Files and Storage

+1 wee eddie. That is what we keep saying.
