Everything looks good unless you do not actually have 29.9GB of user data, pictures, videos, etc. Then you need to look closely there.

You could also take a screen shot of the results and then follow this how to post screenshot

for a few more opinions , Xhi is correct from what you have shown you should be okay.

There may be some other simple solutions to your problem as in cleaning out some temp files ,
but if you could expand the C:Users folders in win dir then take a few screen shots
we could let you know what is safe to delete.

Oh in win dir go to the C: user folder in the feft pane then click on it like this

then expand each folder and look for anything you do not need or recognize
then ask us or delete it if you are sure it is safe to do so.

Apple backup and lots of music, pictures and videos. Got to remove some or buy a bigger disk. All looks normal to me.

I am guessing that you do have more than one hard drive in this computer or at least another partition on this disc.

If so then just follow this guide and move your data to another disc or partition,
and leave windows and program files /data on the C:Drive.
