I'm running win 7 pro on a 120 gb Vertex 3 ssd. In Windows Explorer, all the folders only add up to about 33 gb but when I click on C: and then "properties" its says 78 gb is used. What am I missing? Thanks!


Windows 7 Pro, i7- 920, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, 6 Gb DDR3, 120 gb Agility 3 SSD, 500 Gb WD drive, OCZ Mod X Stream- Pro 700 watt psu, Corsair H50 cooler with 2 Silenx low rpm fans, 9800 GT video card, 2- 140mm case fans

bruceb3 ... WinDirStat will show what you are looking for.  Download here, from bleepingcomputer.com.

BleepingComputer Review:

WinDirStat scans one or more hard drives and produces a detailed map or the disk making space hogs immediately apparent.

It does this by drawing a rectangle for each file, the relative sizes being decided by the relative sizes of the files. So, a very big file will be a very big box and a small file would be a small box.
