Windows 7: lost space on my ssd disk

13 Nov 2012   #1

windows 7 (64 bit)
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?
