    Hi David, the 43GB is the Windows partition. The Windows folder is only 25GB.
    Thanks Wolfgang !

    A large Windows folder is quite normal. For comparison my Windows folder is 29GB, a bit bigger than yours.
    The recommendation of running Disk Cleanup in the other answer are worth a try, but I suspect winsxs is the main cause of your large Windows folder.
