    Bree, you have saved me soooo much headache!! 10 years I've been using Windows OS and have never seen this issue before. The first link you provided had a command to clean the files, and IT WORKED! Once you run the second command on that forum response, it says to restart. I restarted and it took about 30 minutes to go from the splash screen to the desktop, but now all 28 missing GB are back AND 3 GB that I had been missing for a few months (I chalked it up to updates, etc.). For anyone in the future, this is some sort of "log" that is written during use of certain OS functional applications. As Bree mentioned, there is not much about it floating around on the net, but this fix seems to resolve it fully!
    Which commands, exactly, did you run? Followed the link but the thread was from 2009; fsutil doesn't seem to have a 'setautoreset' option, nor 'set autoreset'.
    More detail about what worked for you would be very helpful, as I have 50+ GB of unaccessible space on my SP4 250 GB SSD.
    Thanks --

    Thanks. That seems to have cleaned up the problem, down to ~2GB unaccessible.
