Drive says 120GB installed (Its wrong)

My computer says it has 120GB used, but when I highlight all of the items and select properites it says 11.5GB.

If anyone knows a way to fix it or trouble shoot please post. Thanks!

Hi,

It could be a lot of hidden system files. Have you had the machine long?

I would suggest that you clean all but the latest restore point and see how much of an impact that makes.

Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup (Right-click - > Run as Administrator)

The winsxs folder could be confusing Windows Explorer also.

Don't delete winsxs though.
