Best program to visualize file system usage on Windows?

I just bought a new pc. I have 2 hard drives. One is C, an SSD HD of 60 gb where is installed Windows and the other is a normal HD of 2tb.

When i started the first time my computer I found that the space on C was just 20 gb. Someone told me to move the paging file to D so now i have 34gb, but im still missing 10 gb.Im really worried as i need to install some software that requires 10/15 gb of space.

Can someone help me to know where these 10 gb are and if there is some opportunitis to create more space on C?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

More than likely it is being used by Windows System Restore Points. –  Moab Feb 28 '11 at 20:32
Some may be lost to the great gods of Manufacturer Megabytes: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_disk_drive#Capacity_measurements And a page from Apple suggests that 5GB can be lost that way on an iPod, which would be comparable to what you would loose with Windows... discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=1803224 –  Mokubai Feb 28 '11 at 20:36
SSD drives have a 'reserved' section for failed cells. It's often included in disk size specs. –  Jakub Konecki Feb 28 '11 at 21:16

very hard to say without looking at the Disk management?

Can you send a screen shot of your disk management on here? To get this go to

Start --> Control Panel -->Administrative Tools -->Computer Management-->Disk Management

This might provide a few more answers to your missing space

you will have to uploa the pic somewhere and provide a link to it on here using the following syntax. { ![Network Diagram][1] } minus the curl braces and then put the following { { [1]:whateverthelinkis } –  IanN Mar 1 '11 at 0:40

JDiskReport ( http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/ ) is your friend.

I find this little tool invaluable in finding where all my hard drive space has gone.
