Your files have been most likely hidden. There was a popular virus some time ago that changed the file attributes to "hidden" and "system" (+hs).

Use a disk space management tool to find out which folders occupy most or an unusual amount of your disk space. Make sure to run them "As Administrator" so that these tools are able to see the whole content of your disk.

I do not know how to recover the disk to former state, that is, to recover the directory structure of the dive without transfering the data to another disk and then retransfering it to the drive.
