Assuming that this is your boot drive...

Space is taken up by paging file, hibernate file, system recovery points, and recycle bin. Less likely is that you created a small partition on a larger drive. I suggest that you download and run WinDirStat; it does an excellent job of scanning a drive and telling you where space is used.

You might try Disk Cleanup from the Properties screen for the drive.
