I ran diskpart (without the ext drive).

Uh Oh!

My free space has been undone; the only "work" that I've done is to image my system and back up partition via Seagate Disk Wizard. Now I only have 40G out of 500G.

A big shout out to all who helped tirelessly on this issue; especially dsperber and others who pointed to the Restore Point usage. I now have 234G free out of 451! Ran CC cleaner to top it off.:D

I ran WinDirStat and the total count was 190G with the videos and pictures taking the most space; so my approximate "count" was close. Am I correct in the total count? If so where is the other 300G?...
