Missing around 74 GB of hard drive space

Hi !!!
After running "Folder Size 2.9.0.0" I realize that it shows two different values used by drive C : 54.32GB and 128.05 GB. (please see attached screenshot below). why is it like that?
I would like to know where is 74GB?
Thank you for your consideration

Pedro

You need to post a full shot of disk management, then we can go from there.

You got me lost.
Post #3 show a 150 gb hard drive for (C) drive and 28 gb free. Which means you have 122 gb of data on your Drive (C).
Your post #1
Show a 3rd party program with 54 gb of (other) I have no idea what (other) is.
Try this:
Start Orb/Computer/right tick on (C) and go to properties and show one of these.

Well, LaybackBear, the post #3 and #1 both is showing 22GB free. post #1 was the result after running a program called "Folder size 2.9.0.0" which can give you a picture of how many GB each file and folder is using. The post #3 is the result by disk management (according to AddRam requests) .
the point is: when i check those files in drive it really tuns out as 54GB used so that why i'm asking where is the others.

All three of the screen shots are reporting the same thing. The amount you have free, the total and the like.

Not sure where your confusion is here?

The first screenshot you have F highlighted. I do not know why. You want C

My D: drive should be 230GB. After installing less than 30GB it seems to be all most full. So I downloaded the program 'Folder Size' to check on my space. Which says that my disk is only 33GB in size. So I'm missing a small 200GB. How can I use that missing 200GB?
