The utility (or a similar one) I linked to...provides a quick, efficient way of seeing where partition space is going.
Myself...I prefer to take a look using Explorer, whenever I have concerns about free space within a partition. But I keep my system partition at a manageable size of about 20GB, which makes it easy for me to take this approach.
On such a large C: as stated...my approach would take lots of time and effort, while the utility would make it much easier to investigate.
As for exploring what's in the temporary files folder...considering the size of video files, graphics files, and music files...and Windows functions such as hibernation...and backups...temporary files are miniscule. IMO, it's better to get a "global view" of what's on the partition, rather than anticipate or guess where the problem lies.
Once large files are singled out, those folders/files can then be examined in more detail.
