    @Berton, thanks. So your Storage values match closely what explorer shows.
    Mine do not. I wonder if I should now worry.

    @bro67, you suggested I look in disk management, so I posted disk management in post#5. The issue is not the size of drive. It is about discrepancy between explorer and what Windows reports in Storage. Explorer is correct. Storage is not.

    Yes, why does C show 139 GB in Explorer and 78.4 GB in DM, that is strange.

    Your Disk Management shot shows 4 Unlettered partitions and 1 Unallocated section, mine has only 2 lettered partitions and 2 unlettered which is the default way ASUS set it up. I still think the Storage feature can't show Unlettered partitions or drives like Disk Management and File Explorer can. Many other programs won't see any more than the lettered drives, even File Explorer can't see Unlettered drives until after they have been partitioned and formatted in Disk Management then given a letter.

    That doesn`t matter, his C partition should show the same amount, and it doesn`t, it`s way wrong.

    The unlettered partitions and unallocated space have nothing to do with C Windows 10.

    When he`s booted into 10 (C in this case) that`s considered "This PC", so why is it showing 139GB in one place and 78GB in DM ?

    It`s all there in DM, nothing`s hiding.

    Are you, by any chance relocating your user folder to another drive? Are you relocating any library folders? or using additional library folders on another drive?

    No, users isn't moved. But in Windows 7 I did relocate Libraries to the M: data drive to keep system images smaller.

    Correct, plus true used space for Linux section is in Gparted. I don't expect Windows to know about it.
    That said,
    I think I see how STORAGE reports funny numbers. If you look at the data in my post#1 about what storage reported and then the true values of C: partition in Explorer or DiskMgmt AND add the space Linux Mint uses, it matches their math. Like this:
    Windows 10 total space 78.4 + 61.5 mint = 139.9 gig -- this is slightly acceptable.
    Windows 10 used space 25.2 + 61.5 mint = 86.7 gig -- this addition is insane considering diskmgt sees Linux as not used.

    Ok, so add the space used by your library's to the space on C: and see if it matches

    That doesn`t matter either because you moved W7 folders, not W10.

    Use this program, I believe someone already mentioned it.

    Why do you suggest to add the Windows 7 libraries' space, and add to what?
    FYI, it's 21GB but not on the C: drive.

    I have TreeSizeFree. I gather from your link that it's similar. I prefer not to install things too much. What to look for in the context of this thread?
