Windows 7: Missing Space

24 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

In windows explorer. If you view the properties of the partition you get the pie chart which accurately shows the partition usage.
If you select the folders in the right pane and view properties and you have Windows images or a (file/folder) backup folder they will not be included in the folder size reported.

Third party images are likely to show their actual size.

Running a chekdisk with both options ticked from the option in Properties appears to have done the trick.

Thanks for the help.
