    Try downloading and running the program JdiskReport. It will show you a pie chart of what folders are taking up the most space.

    Right-click RECYCLE BIN and then click Properties.

    What's the number in "Custom size: Maximum size (MB):"?

    Are you storing a lot of video and audio files in your computer?
