[WIN8] C drive showing 53GB of 55GBS used.

I have a problem with a hard drive. I have a 60GB ssd drive that I am using for my c drive. I was looking at the properties and it is reporting 53GB used out 55GB. When I added all folders I can only account for around 20GB. I opened the properties of each folder to get the totals.
What could cause this? That 33Gbs that is not accounted for.

System files (mostly page & hiber) plus file(s) in the recycle bin.

In particular, files in the recycle bin may be very hard to see.

Try booting a linux CD or Hiren's boot CD -- that should allow you to see more of what's going on.

Bear in mind the folders displayed by Explorer are the ones the current user has access to, not everything that exists.

Likewise, this thread shows only the replies it has access to, not every reply that exists.
