This might seem like a dumb question, but did you also empty the recycle bin? If not thats why you still see your drive full.

dude i found the problem i had installed rollback rx and after i uninstalled it 40gb free space more i got!.

i dont know whats wrong with the program.its like windows system restore but better.its snapshots take only 50mb and it restores to previous snaps in 1 min.but the first snapshot of the system that the program created was 200gb,i really dont get that,and you cant delete this snapshot cause its locked(for mthe program).

its a good program so im really trying to see how to solve this issue.......
