i will try to keep it simple....
my c drive has 2.83 gb out of 9.45 gb but when i go to properties of c drive
it shows that c drive has allocated 6.45 gb of space......
what is the solution because i read many articles describing the reasons but
any one can tell me the right solution......

Empty your recycle bin (for all accounts on your system), and check to see if Restore Points are using up space on your drive. This article is useful for checking Restore Points.

yes u r right my bro.......and thanks for reply.....
i will try to explain briefly;;;;
i was not able to see some of my files even though i was using
folder option but that also did not worked.........i was a bit confused......
then i read about FolderSizes 4 which was in a sense a perfect solution for my
problem.........with the help of FolderSizes 4 i was able to see the super hidden
files and folders on C drive....the super hidden files or folders r given below........
System Volume Information
and many more......
but pagefile.sys and System Volume Information were taking most of the space
on C i was able to diagnose my problem...then i had to decide that
how important pagefile.sys and System Volume Information r for my system.....
after googling for pagefile.sys and System Volume Information this thing came
in to my knowledge that u can have pagefile.sys which is somewhat important
for memory or RAM......but u can easily remove System Volume Information with some simple steps....which is mentioned below......
right click on on on disk on more options.....then under system on on on on yes....
i hope that this thing will work if any one having the same problem....
