    Alright, I don't anything about computers. I'm into science but not computers, but my brother has very... extensive... knowledge about this area.

    I'm trying to figure out why my C:\ has only about 2 gigs of space left out of 90 gigs. I don't use that much space on my computer. I have itunes and some programs and word files and that's it, so there's no reason for so much space to be eaten up. I think my brother is using my laptop for... something, but I have no idea what because if he is he hid the files from me. (And no, I can't always keep my computer away from him or his internet skills).

    I manually checked the contents of C:\ and the Windows file has 48 gigs used up and the User file has 17 gigs used. All the other files have negligible amounts of data usage. I don't know what to do beyond here though.

    Can someone give me some advice on how to figure this out? Like how to do a scan or view hidden files?
