SSD 70gb missing?

Hello, I have my OS installed on my SSD ( 128GB ) + one game that's around 7GB, I'm constantly running out of space on this SSD though and I have no idea why, I checked all the common folders (desktop, downloads, music etc.) but nothing takes too much space. When I selected all folders (including hidden) on this drive, it says only 57.1 GB is taken. Where is the other 70GB? Anyone has any idea please? Thank you.

Thank you, I used TreeSize and found out that my laptop is constantly recording everything that happens through my microphone and saves it in TEMP folder of my windows - the content of this folder was completely hidden until I opened it - check the image. Now I'll delete all those recordings (it's been happening for more than 2 months) and find out how to stop windows from doing this.
