10GB of my OS SSD storage is gone

It happenedd right after i installed/uninstalled metro last light but it shouldnt matter since i installed it on my hdd drive.
I went into my ssd but cant the file thats responsible for my missing 10gb, even had hidden folder showed.
I used disk clean up and ccleaner 10gb is still missing.

Whatever you count is probably wrong. Here is what you have to add:

1. What WinDirStat tells you - plus

2. The shadowstorage. Run this command:

vssadmin list shadowstorage

It is the Allocated that counts.

No, it was probaly the shadowstorage and something deleted your restore points - happens all the time. Run the command I posted above and tell us what the Maximum is.
