Its not like I cant spare it. Its just that I like to know whats taking up what. I try to be efficient about managing my HDD space.
A good tip I learned is to copy your steamapps folder and completely uninstall Steam, then reinstall it and put steamapps back where it was. There's no risk and all your games will be safe.
There's definitely some junk that's wasting your space, but I can't say how much you'll save in the end.
I'm not too worried about it. If it was taking up gigs of space minus the app folder then I would really be concerned. Since this is not the case (as of now) it was more a of a curious thing more than anything.
Thanks for the solution. I'll keep that in mind.
