How to get it back ???

Hi,
I have a problem with the hard disk space. The drive E is showing a free space of 54.5 GB. But there is only one file in it, which is about 4MB file. There are no hidden files except Autorun.
Here I am attaching the images of the properties of the drive and the drive.
How to get that 4 GB space back ???....
Thanking You.
