lost space on my ssd disk

I have a 120Gb Vertex III SSD disk on which I had 56 Gb free space space left untill the beginning of this week.
Now, suddenly I seem to have lost 6 Gb. of space, without having installed any new programs.
I can't make use of system recovery as on advice this item has been switched off from the beginning.
What could be the matter and what can I do to recover the lost space?
Are there any programs that would be advisable to transfer to my WD harddisk?

Hello pmk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check through the items in the tutorial below to see if it may help ID where the HDD space is being used at. In particular, using OPTION ONE with the WinDirStat program may help the most.
