    What I see from the image showing $Recycle.Bin is it has not been emptied in quite some time. Do you get the same information after it has been emptied? I don't have that named folder on my computer.

    That picture you posted before.. showing 164 GB used, together with $Recycle.bin. Which folder were selected in addition to Recycle?

    Can you post a picture of Treesize, showing it?

    When the time comes, you may find this handy. I agree with the consensus, your Recycle Bin is sick. Needs to go. Not hard to do.

    That's a huge Program Files (x86). Expand that one an look what's in there. Appdata is normal, mine is about 3GB. Users is ok looking.

    Just for comparison, here's mine.
