Post your my computer -> C: drive properties.

Post My Computer -> Properties -> System Protection -> (select C drive) -> Configure

Post My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Performance Settings -> Advanced -> Virtual Memory -> Change

Post the size of your Program files and Program file (x86) directories

Do you have hibernation enabled?

Fill out your systems specs, e.g. how much memory you have and other computer info.

When you say you backed up your files I presume you made a copy ie Windows backup. While this is good as it will allow you to restore you PC in case something goes wrong, it is not going to remove data from your drives. What you can do is cut and paste your personal files to another drive so they are still accessible, Ie from your E:\ drive. (films music pictures etc.) You need to be careful not to move system files as they may no longer work
To clean up your C:\ drive, right click on the drive and select Properties and disc cleanup

If you want to know WHAT is taking up the disk space, use this little prgram. It's great at finding unknown file space hogs...

Apart from checking with the excellent program that fseal posted, you must also check your shadowstorage because that would not show up in the WinDirStat charts.

Open an elevated Command Prompt and type or paste

vssadmin list shadowstorage

Then hit Enter. Look for the C and E numbers. Allocated is what is currently used. Maximum is what will be ultimately used.

If those numbers are anything bigger than 5 to 10GBs, we'll have to reduce the shadowstorage. Post back and we will tell you how.
