WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics

download windirstat at above link to find out what is using the space.

Could be System Restore points, hibernation file, or something else. You can control both of those.

You should also do a disk cleanup from the start menu

System restore will use space when creating restore points.
It may be part of the 8 GB, if turned on.
