Used data on windows doesn't match?

I used WinDirStat to see how much data I used on my harddrive and it said 45.3GB used but when I look it on windows (by going under computer and right clicking on my harddrive then going to properties) it said that i have 127GB of used space can someone help me becuase I know windows is wrong -___-

I also checked it by going to C:\ and selecting all the files and looking at properties and it also said about 45GB

HELP ME!! thank you

More about used data windows doesn match
  1. Try to clear out the Window restore points.
  2. do you have 80GB in your recycle bin. many programs sees that as regular data. also your folders view properties is likely set to hide files. i bet a lot of that space is hidden files.
