    Try running TreeSize Free as administrator - that will help you find what is taking the space.
    Agree. However, I'd rather use the portable version with no installation required for something I rarely use:

    WizTree Portable finds the files and folders using the most disk space on your hard drive

    Wow - WizTree is fast. Unfortunately it doesn't show the compressed size. As I'm writing a program at the moment to make a minimal sized windows for my VMs I need to see the actual disk used - not the nominal size. I probably run TreeSize 10 times a day - it isn't perfect as it gets terribly confused by junction points but it is the best I've found so far (except it sometimes vastly underestimates disk use).

    Compare the two - TreeSize says my Windows directory is 3GB (about right if I look from another external system), WizTree says it is 16.9GB which it definitely isn't. Program Files is 2.3 GB or 87.7MB - take your pick.

    p.s. explorer is not correct either

    If you don't use Compact /CompactOs:always (or your upgrade didn't do it for you) then WizTree looks better.

    It only confirms what I already knew just where the most drive space was being used! I put it to the test on the 7 drive that would have the most after the 3yrs. of steady use along Windows 10 set up files extractions, iso images, vhds, etc. along with music and video files and guess where the "Heavy Hitters" are most seen?

    The next largest under the last on the bottom is for Duke Nukem 1 or the original 8bit dos game coming in at 1.68mb! The yellow outlined areas right at the top other then the 20gb plus or minus a few gig are the Big ones! Program Files doesn't way much on the 64bit 7 here since most everything ends up being installed into the Program Files(x86) folder anyways on the 64bit Windows with the exceptions of the 64bit flavor of a few softwares.
