I have a 250 gb hard drive. Always have had about 160gb of free space. Yesterday it started to show that I only had about 500mb free space left. Going through explorer I can't figure out what is taking up the space. I did turn off the System Restore, which freed up about 30gb, but I should have much more free space.

What should I do?
