80 gig HDD, and I need to make some room on it... So I go deleting stuff.

HDD Properties says: 56.3 gigs used / 18.1 gigs free.
Properties of all items in root HDD folder says 36.5 gigs worth on the drive.

Now, I've had an odd issue for a while: "delete" a file and it doesn't get assigned to the recycle bin, but disappears. I'm betting that my missing 20 gigs are what I've been deleting without using shift-delete.

Now my question is: how the hell do I recover this space without formatting said drive?
