Where did my disk space goes?

By dmudgal
Jul 22, 2008
  1. my C drive property shows 70gb of disk space is used up. However, I started "Explore All User"; CNTL-A to select all files and folders on the C: drive, (with option to view Hidden files/folder), then right click for property, it only shows 30.1gb.
    There is a 40gb discrepency. Where does it goes? Can anyone help me with this mystery?

    The swap file can account for some of that missing space but not all of it. Perhaps there's a hidden folder with lots of files inside.
