Windows 7: Hard Drive says fuller than it really is...

I have 17GB of movies. So there's no fix?

When I highlight EVERYTHING on my C:/ drive and right click/properties, it comes up to 46GB

Don't go by that. There is a lot of stuff you cannot see that way. The WinDirStat numbers are the correct and complete numbers (plus the shadowstorage that WinDirStat does not show).

PS: Looks like you also have a good selection of games. Else your program files would not be so bloated.
