To do it follow this :

Right-Click on Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> (Performance) Settings -> Advanced Tab -> (Virtual Memory) Change.

On total files size add pagefile size for C and you will know how much is used.

i have 4 Gb ram and one more question is the GB that it is showing is conversion of taking 1000MB =1GB like hard disk is purchased of 500 GB but it is just 465 GB . or is it calculated of 1024 basis?
Yes. 1 Mb=1024 Kbs and 1000Mbs=1Gb and as far as I know, it is the same unit used for RAM and disks. About total space available on your HDD. You may buy a HDD that says it is 500 Gbs, but when you install it the full amount won't be available.

In that screen you need to click on settings, then click on the advanced tab, then under virtual memory click on the change tab, After that is open you will need to select custom size, if you want to change the size of the page file.

Explorer can be deceptive.
It is absolutely obvious from your screen-shot that WinDirStat is either Useless or wrongly configured.

I would totally trust TreeSize when it says that System Volume Information holds 742.7 MB,
and if you click it will expand and show you the names and sizes of individual files that are in there.
That is a capability of not only the Profession paid for version but also the Free version which I use.

Windows Explorer is incapable of showing me the size of System Volume Information
(unless I do to some operations with iCacls which are just within my knowledge but way outside my comfort level).
It would appear that your WinDirStat is utterly useless - or wrongly configured,
and it is ignoring the size of System Volume Information and everything else which Windows Explorer also conceals.
