    Nice work and I think I know what to do now.
    And in order to thank you for your nice work, you many want to know some 100% free data recovery software, like Recuva, iCare Data Recovery Free, PC Inspector Recovery and PhotoRec.
    Hope it will also help you somehow.
    Thanks for your nice post.

    The largest file WinDirStat found was a integratedofffice.exe file (93gb). Am I okay to delete this or at least compress it or something? Please help!

    windows says that I have only 33Gb free but if I boot from linux usb it says I have 72GB free.

    I start windirstat (admin) and on start it says 32.9 free out of 118 (ssd drive) 72% used but when expanded it only accounts for 46.6 GB being used. (which tallies with the linux boot amount of free space)

    how do I get the correct free space to show in windows because it will not let me use it.

    Running WinDirStat as Administrator was the secret for me. Once I did this, it found a 330GB transaction log from from my Sql Server database that had grown way too large. Once I say that, I was able to google and figure out how to reduce the transaction log file size.

    Just disable VSS shadow copy service and then enable it, this should do the trick.

    What does disk management show? disk mgmt should show the actual size of the hard drive.

    Shadow copies, virtual paging files, hibernation file all add to this hard drive clutter. If you disable all these things, this should show the correct disk space on your drive.

    I think defragmenting your hdd will fix this problem?

    I have my 500 GB hard drive which shows only 465 GB after formatting. Will this be fixed by your method? I want to use complete 500 GB.

      No, you will never be able to use the full size of a HDD or SSD because windows has to use some space for system files and the sort to make the drive work properly.
