    What's eating up my \C: drive?


    This morning my c: drive shows 10.7 GB free, on a 117 GB SSD, looking at the files and folders on C:, with View set to show hidden files and folders and protected OS files not hidden, adding up the size of each comes to 82 GB, that 24 GB unaccounted for.

    Any clues?
