Windows 7: Why is 7 Gigs free space missing on restart?

I would hardly think this is due to the pagefile. Normally the pagefile size is set when the OS installed and it would only be changed if RAM is increased or the commit charge forces an increase. It would be very unusual for that to happen at bootup.

Were any of the files compressed? If so they would consume less disk space than was reported by Windows Explorer.
But without knowing the nature of the files involved this is all just guesswork.

Hello. The C drive in my computer is 139 GB (150 GB hard drive). Windows shows that there is 45.5 GB free, but if I select the contents of the drive and check the properties, it says that everything on the drive is taking up 70.8 GB on the disk. But in doing the math (139-70.8 = 68.2) it looks...
