Windows 7: Where is my drive space? 125GB missing.

Where is my drive space? 125GB missing.

For some strange reason I have about 125GB missing from my system drive, and I can't find out what or where the problem is.
here is a screen shot of my drive,



I did select to show Hidden and System files last night when I was trying to see where everything was and I just can't figure out what is holding all of that space hostage.

There is nothing in the recycle bin, ran disk cleanup a few times, defragged the drive, went through almost every folder as well looking.

this is really strange.

go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, click on disk management. take a screenshot of that and post it.

Run a tool like Windirstat or TreeSize free to see what is taking space.

My guess is that it's system restore points. Right click My COmputer, Properties, System protection and look at your C drive. That can easily eat up quite a bit of drive space.

The Drive is 1TB, but partitioned into 200GB and 731GB.
