Windows 7: HDD showing 112 GB incorrect disk space usage

HDD showing 112 GB incorrect disk space usage


My system specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70 Ghz,
Intel HD Graphics 400

My Computer Management shows 112 GB of used space more than I have for my C: drive. It shows 233 GB (capacity), 208 (used space) and 24,7 (free space).
I checked pagefil and hiberfil and everything looks fine but I can not detect where that 112 extra GB come from.
I scanned my drives with WinDirStat but it shows that my C: drive use just 95,8 GB.

It was that. I should read more carefully older topics. I wounder why WinDirStat did not recognize that.

Thanks for your answer!
