Ok, it is only 86 GB that were in use. My hard drive has 310 GB free out of 455 GB, but Windows, users, program files, etc. only use 59 GB total. TuneUp Utilities 2012 fixed the problem. None of the Windows 7 methods worked, and CCleaner could not find the problems either.
I am going to restore my computer from its image a fourth time. I would like to find a solution that does not require an outside piece of software as I feel the Windows 7 community would benefit from not having to purchase additional software to get a recovery to work.
