I have an ASUS notebook running windows 10 which has a 32GB Sandisk. 

According to the properties of the C: drive I have used 25.8GB and have 2.47GB free. This is confirmed by Disk Management which also shows a couple of other small partitions. 

However if I open the C: drive and look at the properties of the folders and files within it, I only have 15GB of files on the drive. 

I have compression enabled, I'm showing hidden files and I've set the security permissions of the drive to give me full control (which includes list permission). 

As I seem to be running out of space I clearly need to delete files but I seem to have over 9GB of files not listed. 

Any ideas about this discrepancy? 

I have attached some screen shots.

Have you run cleanup>clean system files on the disk? You could try that if not.

Partially it is from the selle point also.


They mark it a 32GB Device but they don't actually give you a 32 GB.
