Download and use windrstat. I guess that it is restore points and shadow points.

One thing, when you see a piece with a lot of gb used, just put the cursor (or click) to see what is inside.

The space is probably being used by shadows (restore points) - do the following:

Press Start > right click on Computer > Properties > go to System Protection (on top in the left pane) > highlight C > click on Configure.

What do you see under "Disk Space Usage" > "Current Usage". If that corresponds to the space you are missing, then the space is being used by restore points.

Free space on C drive keeps decreasing?
My OS is windows 7 32bit. What I have done to prevent decreasing is: 1. disable system restore on all drives. 2. turn off hybernation 3. move pagefile to other drives. The problem is it is still decreasing, though in a lower rate. Any suggestions? Thanks.
