I've just realized that on my C: partition, which has capacity of 111GB, I have a GB of free space missing:

  • 111GB - capacity of my SSD drive
  • 69,7 GB free of 111GB - this is what My Computer info is saying about my C:
  • when I go to C:, and select all files and run Properties, the size in only 15,9GB

So where are my 25GB of free space missing?

Not all files are selected by default in Windows Explorer. As an example, the Page File and Hibernation file, both of which are 1-2x the amount of RAM you have in your system. When you right-click and go to Properties of the hard drive, it includes all the hidden and system files as well

Correct! I've just came across - it shows all files – dragonfly Jan 12 '13 at 18:44
