Windows 7: Problem with space

Windows 7 64 bit
Problem with space

Hi Friends,

I am facing weird issue. Thought some great minds can help me out here.
I am using 350 GB hard disk. C: is 100 which I am fine with.
D:\ is 250 GB. (Though it is showing as 229 GB). I have used 74 GB of space in it. But "My computer" is showing as 7.8 GB free. I am unable to find what happened to another 160 GB. I did not find a way to identify which program/file is using this space?

can someone help me out here? Please give me a shout if you have any questions.

You could install TreeSize Free - Quickly Scan Directory Sizes and Find Space Hogs and see what it shows you about the drive.
