Windows 7: How do I see all contents on a disk

How do I see all contents on a disk

I have a PC with a SSD C:/ drive that I use for program files only.
I also have several other hard drives used for music, photos, etc...

If I click on properties for my C drive, I see that 66GB of the total 96GB is used.
That seemed high for just program files so I expanded the view and looked at each one.
Windows - 22.3GB
Users - 6.87GB
Prog 86 - 2.39
Prog - 0
NVidia - 207MB
Miller - 63.5MB

So you can see that I can only see about 33GB of what is supposed to be 65.9GB used.
How can I see what is eating up the rest of the space?
I went into Ctl Panel and clicked on View Hidden Files but still only see about half of what the system says in on the disk/
Thanks.

HI douggoss,

This thread will give you some ideas as to why you should delete the file if you never had use hibernate or had a reason to . It can free up your space in Gbs. Mine it freed around 15 GB.

Hard Disk Space - Free Up and Recover

But be careful while using those step.

Hope this helps you.

The utility I use to view drive contents is "Folder Size" and can be downloaded from;

Folder Size - Freeware file size analysis. Check the directory sizes, folder sizes and file sizes on your computer with this freeware tree size analysis tool.
