hard disk free space lost

i have a problem with my laptop.70 gig of my hard space is missed . i know that it is in c:/user/sadra/appdata/local but
when i check each subfolder or subfile in "local" i cant find such a huge space like that.
i have read many posts about it but in fact all solutions were useless .
i appreciate any suggestion.

May just be that the file in question is hidden so you cant see it
