hehe, I don't understand your numbers.

 

When you start WinDirStat you will first see a summary window.

There you can select your C: drive or all local drives and then press OK.

 

If you select your C: drive and press OK, it will take a minute and then you see a summary of used and free space as well as a graphical map of all the files and folders.

 

If your harddrive really is full, you should be able to see what is filling it, either up in the tree-list or by hoovering the mouse over the lagre squares to see what files they represent.

 

A default Windows 7 installation should only use ~12 GB. I have installed lots of programs so my installation use ~25 GB.

That mean that I have more than 400 GB free for games, music, movies, etc.

Ok!! Say that firs unit Q:use 84% hard drive capacity.

2.17GB are free of 13.67Gb.

I think that it is a software problem.

It sounds to me like you are looking at the hidden recovery partition, and not your actual C: drive... Under normal conditions you shouldn't see that drive....

I don't know how you are looking, but Q: is the hidden recovery (system restore) partition.

That partition is quite small, and full with all the data to restore your laptop to factory defaults if needed.

 

It is perfectly ok that this partition (Q:) is nearly full, since you should never touch it. In fact, you shouldn't normally see it.

 

If you instead look at your C: partition, you should have like 400 GB free.
