Windows 7: System drive is full. why?

System drive is full. why?

Hi All

I am new to this form and hope this is the right place to get help.
My C: dreive is a 128GB SSD which devided into 70 and 50 GB logical drives.
Windows and all programs are installed on 70GB, the 50GB drive is free.
All programs are about 11GB, Windows 7 ultimate 64 is about 17GB so all together it should not exceed 30GB. Suddenly I found on one day that my user folder became 25GB without any reason. When looking into it and calculated all subfolders it even did not come to 1GB.
So the C drive is almost full and I have no idea for the reason.
Can anyone help?

Welcome to Seven Forums bigbingo. Do you have Hibernate turned on? The hyberfile.sys file can grow quite large.

Hibernate - Enable or Disable

In addition to Tree Size, I like the free Space Sniffer
