    Taken from Reddit.

    First off it's important to note what the problem is:

    When you add free DLCs to your account, they get downloaded to your console automatically even if you don't own the game or have the prerequisite game installed. You can even imagine a scenario where you don't have enough space to install the base game, because the DLC for it is taking up space. :)

    If you do not own the game, then you cannot manage that game's DLC in your games library. Neither Games or Ready to Install will have an entry for those games you don't own.

    This can leave many gigabytes of storage space wasted on your Xbox One.

    So here is the process for removing these unused DLC, for people who aren't aware:

    Press the Xbox button on your controller.

    Navigate over to the gear icon and select Settings.

    Navigate down to System, then select Storage.

    Choose "Make more space".

    In the "Leftover add-ons" section, take note of the amount of space used, shown next to Size:. Respond in this thread how much was wasted for you (optionally. :)

    Select "Uninstall all".

    I'll have to try this. Often notice stuff in recently installed section stuff I don't own, but likely Blue does and have never found how to get rid.

    It's not so bad I play it enough to at least keep the dust off it
