Hello I am a new member. I salute to every one on this forum. I have Win7 Ultimate 64 bit. I use pc for video editting and video copying .I do not save my work in drive "C" bot in drive "F" and "E". My drive "C" is red and showing only 11 GB space out of 300 GB. After going through each folder and sub folder of drive "C" I see maxium folders occupy space in KBs and MBs only a few folders are in Gbs that too 2 GB or 2.5 gb Max. There is a folder called malik users when I put cursor on this folder, I see the size only 9 GB but when I clicked on properties size is shown 160 GB. Why is this? Please help me to resolve this issue. I thank every on in advance for the help. Thanks and regards.

It sounds like a virus. Try running an anti-virus program.

Get WinDirStat or SpaceSniffer and run one of them. Make sure you have FREE SPACE enabled to be shown. Grab a ScreenShot of it and post here please.

Possibly temporary files amassed in your Temporary Folder. Run Disk Cleanup on the drive. Properties >Disk Cleanup.
