Loss of C drive HDD space!

Hello forum,

I'm not really sure if this is the right place to post this but.
I have noticed that I am losing plenty of space in my C:\ drive, I own a SSD around 55g HDD
From what I've calculated I should be left over with 20+- GB of space, but why do I have only 1GB left?
