Try this progam... freepctech.com...
Treesize pro (if the pro version doesn't work let me know and I will upload mine)
This is a program that should be built into windows explorer its so handy.
There can be a number of reasons why you have lost space.
The HD may take some for itself,
There may be many small files that are using a whole cluster and wasting space as well.
The HD is divided up into clusters, if a program takes only a small part of the cluster, then the rest of that cluster is deemed to be used, no other
file can be in that cluster.
So, for example, if you write only one line on a page, you can't have another story on that entire page, all the space left is wasted.
Tresize shows all that wasted space as well.
Even with that working though 1 gig is certianly a lot of space used for nothing...
