    Hello everyone!

    I would really like your help with a problem that drives me crazy!!!
    I have a toshiba x500-11u with windows 7 home-premium x64 and 2 500GB hard disc drives, one of them partitioned by default to 2 232GB partitions.
    One of the 232GB partitions is the C: partition,the drive with the operating system etc.
    Thats where I have the problem!
    This drive shows only 44,8 GB free from the 232 GB available, but when I go into the drive, select all the folders (hidden and system files included) and go to properties, it shows that only 85 GB are in use.
    I also tried using jdisc report which shows 99,4 GB in use and windirstat which shows 98,5 GB in use.
    I have not enabled Windows Image Backup and the currect system restore use is 7,5 GB.
    I can't think of anything else to try, where could the rest 90 GB of free space have gone?
    I am really looking forward to your responses!
    Thank you in advance!!!
