Did you try TreeSize Free ?
Here are a couple of threads i found where using it helped solve the issue:
running out of hard drive space. 67.5GB unknown CAB file wasted space
Lost space on external drive - Lost 1TB of 2TB drive

Worked!!!

TreeSize did what WinDirStat could not. It gave a folder - VMWareDnD (in Temp Folder) - that seemed to be having a bunch of files. I know where the issue is, who the culprit is now and have now fixed it.

Thanks DavidE and whs for your suggestions.
