Windows 7: 169GB unknown file in windirstat

I agree, TreeSize Free is better than winDirStat

After spending weeks trying to find the missing space of 146GB, it turned out to be the printer spooled file which I was able to locate through TreeSize Free
I deleted it and it is gone

I used to use treesize all the time, but I've since switched to WinDirStat. Very powerful tool with a killer graphical interface.
