Run Treesize Free. It will show you exactly where the space is going.

Appdata size

Just have a quick check that you didn't give yourself permission to access everything in your user folder.

Also set folder view to "Show hidden files and folders" the head to:


Then check to see if you have multiple application data folders listed - in other words when you open the first application data folder do you see another one inside it and so on?

Thanks for the reply guys, treesize saved my life. I use Adobe Premier, and the cache files are saved into roaming folder, (AppData -> Roaming -> Adobe -> Common). I selected the option to view hidden files and folders, but the roaming folder wasn't visible.
