Windows 7: 250Gb SSD showing as full when using only 60Gb..?

250Gb SSD showing as full when using only 60Gb..?


I have a 250Gb Samsung EVO 850 that reports it just has a couple of gigabytes spare (edit 8Gb after removing some stuff) when i am using only 60Gb as per WinDirStat - i only realised when i turned on the comp and google drive said its runs out of space

I have everything off, 1Gb Page-file (8Gb RAM) - hibs OFF, screenshot of WDS and Disk Management below - 10% OP accounts for the unallocated space

Ive ran chkdsk /f but no change
I ran SFC /SCANNOW and it found corrupt files it could not fix and the text log is 166Mb

can anyone help please?

edit: I have noticed that recycle bin shows that i still have 209Gb available..??

Try Tree Size Free from the above link. It might give you a better idea than WinDirStat.
