Strange ssd and steam issue

Last response: in Storage

Hello there,

I bought a 240bg ssd a while back and loaded a whole bunch of steam games onto it. Everything was great except when I initially installed steam it dumped all of the various folders on my desktop. I deleted everything and started over. This initial problem is fixed but now I have a worse one...

I think I screwed up when I deleted all of this crap on my desktop because instead of telling steam to delete the games then deleting steam I just jumped straight to deleting all of the containing folders

So basically I have unaccounted for space being taken up on my ssd from this initial steam install. Its pretty significant too, shogun 2 total war took more than 32gbs!!! and that is space I'm really starting to miss. I think I probably have 60gbs of missing space.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

Best solution

Run this,

You should be able to determine where the missing space is from the information it gives you.

Thank you

I'll make another post if I can't figure out where the data is
