Using Windows XP Pro. When I right-click on the c drive and look at the pie chart information, it shows that I have 114gb of used disk space and 30gb available. This is totally not right. Here is what is weird. When I double-click the c drive and select all of the folders to see how much space they take up it tells me that the total is 30 gb not 114gb. It's like the nubmers are backwards on the pie chart info. I do have hidden files shown as well so it is not that I don't think. Any ideas?

There's always some variation among measures of disk space, and the space used is always more than the total size of the files due to incompletely filled clusters.

But not THAT much variation.

Try yet another measure:

Disk Pie or TreeSize
