In WinDirStat you can delete files directly. Just right click on the colored block belonging to the file and you will see. Be aware that WinDirStat does not show restore points. For those you have to check with an elevated command prompt and this command

vssadmin list shadows

That will list all the restore points (shadows) you have - if any. If you want to delete them, this is the command:

vssadmin delete shadows

Thanks for the picture.
It shows that Windows 7 is only seeing 13% free space on your "C" partition.
You don't want any more on the "C" partition.

Now we just need to know if your total of 206 GB logs is truly logs that can be removed.
Then try to understand how those logs got on your "C" partition.

Thank Wolfgang I learned something, which always makes me happy.
I didn't know that WinDirStat didn't show restore points.

I see 2 restore points. That should amount to less than 2GB. Check with this command:

vssadmin list shadowstorage

D: shows very little space left, recovery all I found in it
D: shows little space left, all we saw in it was Recovery and we couldn't open it to view files. Is this normal? We have made a Recovery disc for computer. We keep getting notifications stating very little disc space available and the C: has plenty of space available. We're confused.
