    New work computer- No bloatware and HD has 107GB used up


    I just received a new computer (out the box) from our IT department. It is temporary computer until my new one comes in from Dell. I booted it up started window up and seen the C drive is full only 13GB free of 107GB. There is no bloatware, just office and adobe installed. I know the HD is small, but I doubt it should be this full with only windows installed.

    I went into the C drive got totals space taken up by the folders and my results were:

    Windows Folder:40.3GB
    Program Files 86x Folder:7GB
    All other folders add up to about 2 GB

    A total of 48.3GB

    My question are:

    Why is my drive full?

    58GB of space unaccounted for ( also checked for hidden folders)

    Thank you,

    Thank you, but it still is not adding up. The section other has 34GB of space used up, but it only shows folders with data with a combined 1GB of data.

    When I click Other like in your screen shot, I get 18+ gb with not much more breakdown than yours. So I ran WinDirStat, a thorough disk space analysis tool, to get a further breakdown and the only item resembling this size is the Driver Store in System32. You're showing almost twice that so there may be other hidden folders to account for like a work recovery image that was flashed to it, restore points or something. If you have admin rights, download WinDirStat here - Download WinDirStat
    and let it analyze. Hope this helps
