Welcom to Seven Forums opp82. The 27.2Gb is only Program files, this doesn't count your videos, pictures, music, or any other files you have on the HDD.
The WinDirStat Kado linked to willl give you a graphical picture of files you have.

opp82,
Show us the output of windirstat if you still have questions.

If you know how to use powershell, then there are several scripts out there to sort your folders by size.
