HI !
recently cleand my disk from some old files but space still used while all summed file sizes are 300GB less , uploaded image
if it were 30GB I would understand some hidden files and all that HDD stuff , but it's 300GB

what might be a problem ?

So , I solved that issue by moving everything from certain folder into another folder
that folder showed me 6 gigabites but when you are selecting files inside it's 200+ gb , first time see such issue
maybe it just didn't like folder name

anyway ... defragmentation didn't help
windirstat helped to see that folders real size
thank you both !
