You're welcome. Smiley Happy

 

Just taking the conservative approach until we know what's what.

It means User data takes up 65.4GB. This includes downloads, pictures, documents, on all user accounts on your PC. Windows only took up 16.7GB.

The rest is scattered through your programs, drivers, recovery files, system volume info, etc. I would recommend you checking your User files, as that's where bulk of your storage is taken up.

The rest will probably be sitting in a folder under your User account name, and which is separate from the default Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos folders.

 

Use File Explorer to go to C:\Users\Your Username\ and see what's listed...

 

While you're at it, just see what's listed under C:\Users\ - There should be just three folders: Default, Public and your Username.

 

You might just check the Default and Public folders while you're there...

Thanks for the new screenshot.

Please click the little triangle next to Users to expand the tree (expand all branches). That should provide clues as to what, exactly, is occupying the space.

 

Edit to add: the 3rd line item 7.6 GB [30 files] is a bit mysterious, also, considering the vague label.

Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

I tend to use WinDirStat to get a better idea of what's taking up space:

 

https://windirstat.info/

 

This program will give you a graphical representation of the file sizes relative to the drive. You can click on the big blocks and it'll show you the biggest files. Also, each colour corresponds to a file extension, so you can see if a bunch of files with similar extensions are taking up a lot of space.

 

In my attached screenshot, you can see that Diablo III takes up a large portion of my drive.

Your first screenshot is the same one that XBrav attached to his reply above.

Can you post your windirstat image, please?
