Missing hard drive space.

Hi,

a month ago i noticed my C: partition, the one with windows 7 installed was missing around 50 gb of space. Just now, it's about 111 gb.

My C: partition is 399 Gb total. When i select all files manually on C: and look for total space, it show a total 197 gb use.

But when i look the propriety of my c: drive, i have 91 gb available on that 399 gb.

So yeah... 111 gb. No idea whats happening.

I try to check for error... defrag. Nothing. Cleaning the disk. CCleaner also. Nothing.

Anyone know how i can fix this ?

Thank you and sorry for bad English.

Use ccleaner to delete old restore points.

Also, can you see hidden files and folders?

Ok after removing "thank to robintheumpteenth" all restore point using ccleaner and putting "hidden files" on. I have 199 gb instead of 197 gb used space on my 399 gb hard drive.

Free space went from 91 gb to 165 gb :-) Good step in the right direction. Should be around 200 gb right ?

So now i am missing 35 gb. Still. Any tough ?

Windows will still misreport folders with special permissions.

I wouldn't worry too much. You can spend hours chasing a few GBs here and there.
