    Size of all files don't add up to total space used shown in 'This PC'


    Hi,There is a post about this issue already from 2017, but I cannot see any response to resolve it. Here is the link to that post; https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/size-of-all-files-dont-add-up-to-total-space-used/fd002e32-0ba5-499b-9933-8365d55e2534 I have the same issue, my C drive shows that it is almost full; but when I go in the drive and look at the properties, the numbers don't match.See the screenshots for reference and please ignore D Drive; this isn't about her. It's confusing because based on these properties, half of my storage is missing! I have already

    Partition size and total disk space don't match

    Even though the partition size for Disk 0 is 953.87 GB, the total capacity shows up as 793 GB in the list of properties. There isn't any unallocated space, and Drive E (Disk 1's second partition) has a capacity equal to the partition's size. How would I
    make the shown capacity equal to the partition size?

    showing the total of folders/files in drive root

    Properties are shown differently for folders and roots.
    Root properties only shows used and free space.
    Folder properties shows Size, Size on Disk, number of files/folders.
    Questions:
    1 - How can I discover on the root drive the total of folders and files on drive?
    2 - Better, how could I list the number of files within each folder?
    3 - Even better, how could I list the total of subfolders and files at each level within the tree branches?

    Size of all files don't add up to total space used shown in 'This PC'

    Hi,

    Unused disk space can also affect the storage capacity of your device. To isolate your concern, we'd like to check the status of your disk storage. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Right click the Windows icon or the Start menu.
    • Select Disk Management.
    • Once you're in the Disk Management dialog box, check for any unallocated volume. If possible, attach as screenshot of the
      Disk Managementwindow on your next post.

    We're looking forward to your response.
