Hard Drive Space Gone Missing

I seem to have lost about 19GB of hard drive space.

I've checked all my folders to make sure I haven't any large downloads hanging about and also add/remove to see what is listed there out of the ordinary. So far I cannot see what could be eating this amount of hard drive space.

Could it possibly be a section of the hard drive is faulty. My PC is very old (10yrs)with original hard drive.

I ran the SequoiaView program but nothing/results are displaying after it has finished running the program.

I ran CC cleaner again this morning and also registry cleaner, and hey presto my missing hard drive space is back.

Strange how it didn't come back the first time I ran it though. Saying that, I didn't run the registry part of CC cleaner last time so perhaps that's where the problem was. Anyway all OK now.

Thanks everyone for your assistance.
