    hi

    so i have two hard drives on my pc, c and d, both of which have 950 gigs of storage each. i store all my steam games and whatnot on my d drive.

    so uh, idk why, but my c drive says it has 486 gigs of shit on it but i know for a fact that it doesn't. i've tried optimizing, defragging, checking for viruses, searching for hidden files and read-only files but it's come up empty. the drive is fine and i have no viruses or malware on my computer.

    i also don't have this problem on my d drive. the d drive is totally fine.

    ....Have you tried looking for another partition? You might have accidentally just misappropriated space during partitioning?

    Pull up Disk Management and take a look at your drive.

    nope. checked every directory in the c drive with winderstat and it only shows around 150 to 200 gigs.
    pulled it up, the drive is fine.

    Also suggest trying
    win+r
    %temp%

    Then removing everything in that folder, it might not fix your problem completely but it will get rid of some unnecessary folders.

    Just a note @dee pixel this will likely take a while, depending on how large the drive is it could take a few hours. However, if it's a corrupted file then it would likely fix it.
