My storage is being used by something I cant see

HP Recommended

There is a folder under users that says it's taking up 71GB from my C drive when I click on properties, but then the total storage use of all the files inside that only add up to 7GB which really confused me as I want to know where my 64GB which is half of my C drive just vanished?

@Elo502050 

we have no way of accessing your PC, so there is no way we could possibly tell you what is using up that storage.

 

But .. we can provide some links to stuff you can do to free up storage ...

 

Here are some things you can do to recover some of the disk space:

Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:

In addition, I have found the utility Cleanmgr+ to have LOTS of options for removing Windows junk, including log files. I use it practically every day. You can get it from here:

Also, there is a freeware app known as Wise Disk Cleaner. I use it every day to get rid of junk files: https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-disk-cleaner.html
