So yea ive been trying to figure this out but cant come to any conclusion. When I right click my (C:) it sais I have 799gb used and 114gb free diskspace. However when I go into my c: and highlight all the folders and click properties it calculated my total usage to 641gb. So there is an additional 160gb in there somewhere. Anyone encounter this problem ?

The difference of billion bytes versus gigabytes?

That alone can shrink the difference as well as the other usuals noted in this forum's sticky.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
