Windows 7: My windows folder is double that when internally examined !

My windows folder is double that when internally examined !

Hey my laptop only has 100gb on it so recently I’ve found that my windows folder is 62gb when I right click on it and go property’s, but when I enter the folder and select all the files and look at property’s it only finds about half of what it said before! Idk if this is a bug or glitch where the hard drive just thinks it’s full was hoping for a few way to help sort it out? and help get it back down to a normal size so I can use the space for actual stuff

Hi and welcome. I use a program called Tree Size Free to determine what is on a drive.

It is likely your page and hibernate files and/or your system restore file.

Tree Size Free

You can download the portable version (zip file) by selecting from the pull-down menu.
Run the file as administrator.
