Dell computer running XP with 68GB drive, with 4.6GB free. When I view the contents of the drive it lists a number of files and folders that total just less than 5GB of my data, with "Documents and Settings" being the single largest folder at 3.12GB. When I back up the drive my back up software indicates that 30 something GB of the drive in an "Other" catagory that I can not back up.

How can I see where the other 50+ GB (68GB - 4.6GB Free - 5GB of my data) is being used?
