Please Look at your screenshots again. They clearly state this is not the case.

And I do not know why you are bothering with that program, because it states the same thing as the other 2 built in tools.

Perhaps there is an issue with the Folder Size program.

If you would like to try a different software to see if it will help you understand your disk usage you can try Tree Size Free JAM Software - Windows Freeware

However, as others before me have said Windows 7 seems to be correctly reporting the information.
