This may be due to different ways of calculating the empty disk space versus file size. To find free disk space when you right-click on a disk icon in "My Computer", Windows uses different API function. But when you select all files inside a folder, Windows calculates size of all files and adds them up. The difference arises because a handle cannot be opened to all files on disk, as some files are locked even for read access. To check, follow same process on a non-system disk (on which you have not installed Windows), like a USB pendrive or another partition on your hard disk.
