This question already has an answer here:
So, today I have realized that free space on my desktop was suspiciously low (I had only about 60 GB free space). I have a 500 GB SSD and a 500 GB regular hard drive for back up. I don't have a ton of programs installed to start with. Regardless, I uninstalled some unused programs, did a disk cleanup, and cleared my downloads folder.
Now, what is mind boggling is that I still have only about 100 GB empty space. If I grab everything in my C drive and check used space, it says 60 GB. I expect some discrepancy due to numerous reasons. But frankly, having 60 GB worth of files but 376 GB used space is confusing.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Also this is my first time posting, so go easy on me :P
