Hidden Files Using Space

My new 120GB SSD is already running low on space. when I look at the properties of the c: drive (my ssd), it say it is using 62.7 GB, but when I highlight every single folder/file in the drive it says it is using 43.4 GB. Does anyone what uses these hidden 20GB?

  1. Try taking a look at the hidden folders and files.

    In Win7 when you open a window with your ssd find ''Organize'' at the top and from the drop-down menu select the ''Folder and search options''. Then select ''View'' and find where the hidden files and folder section is and select an option called ''Show hiddden files,folders and drives'' and click ''Apply''.

    Then you should be able to see everything on your ssd.
