Should have more 21 more GB of space than there is

I'm trying to free up space on my laptop.
Starting work on the Cdrive, theres a lot of space which is missing. Explorer tells me I've got 14GB free. However, out of 51GB, I'm using 8GB for Windows, 6.5 GB for programme files and little else that I can see. In total I'm using 14.5 (plus maybe a GB more for other small sized folders like Intel, ACER and DRV) so I should have 35GB free, not the 14GB that Explorer is telling me.
I've selected 'show hidden files and folders' to see if there's anything else there but I'm stumped.
Thanks in advance,

Google for how to adjust the space used by windows system restore in Vista
be prepared to use the command line AKA dos type commands to adjust this setting
In certain instances the Vista system restore has a nasty habit of gobbling up most of your hard drives free space
