Found this from WinDirStat.... about 273GB in unknown. I cant figure you where these files are at, or how to delete. I think I am getting closer though.

So update, I deleted some more files, the "unknown" file/s is now up to 283GB, it went up about the same amount I deleted. Seems its something in the recycle/delete department. My recycle bin says I have 465GB of available space to recycle. This is getting weird.

Hi jrisebo, try running disk cleanup again and make sure that the boxes are checked.
