Basically my D disk shows on properties that it has more used space than actually there is on the disk.

My D disk size is 736 GB, it shows that it has 468 GB of used space and 267 GB of free space.

When I select all my files on that disk and click properties on them they show size 227 GB and size on the disk 224 GB.

What the fuck is wrong here, and how can I fix it? I have similar issue on C disk but the difference is only 15 GB.

I done disk clean up, disk defragment, 2 anti virus scans... and nothing. My pc is pretty new, bought it this summer.

Please help.

There may be hidden files on the disk as well. I don't know if it's your main drive with the operating system on it, but the OS can take up a lot of space and a lot of time the files are kept hidden to keep people from playing with/accidentally deleting them.

My computer says 52.2 GB are being used, but when I selected all the files, it only found 47.6 GB. Also should be noted that I'm using microsoft xp which is much smaller than windows vista (which most new computers have now). I'm not sure about the size of a mac OS.

Hope that helped at least a little.

Thanks for your post, but I already solved the problem. There was a folder on disk that was showing false information that was taking about 200 gb's on the disk. Deleted it.

Seriously dude? Is that the best shit you can think of? I'd think you would write this in your own language at least...and repeating mom jokes? Fucking lame. But what's even more lame is this word:
