Hiden files, recycle bins and so on where did my space go?

Hello

Here is the little problem I have.

I select all files on my partition - right click -properties I have 660gb of data
I right click on drive - properties - I have 690gb of data

How can I get those 30 gb back ?

Also if I do indexing and sompression of HDD I see that he is stuck on some files in d:/%recycle.bin and so on...

Same today with windows, I have ssd 240gb, I isnstall windows I have 148 left... I disable hibernation and other paging tweaks and I'm left with max 180gb... if I right click on C I have around 15-20gb worth of programs... where does my 50¬ gb go ?

Thanks, bye.

First, you need to show protected operating system files so you can see everything.
Control Panel, Folder Options, View tab.

Then install Treesize Free , it will show you exactly where the space is being used.

check your recycle bin settings, right click on your recycle bin and select properties. Then you can change tne amount of recycle bin dedicated space.
