✔ Best Answer
If you're talking hard drive space, windows keeps a lot of its files hidden which may be a factor depending on how you're adding them up. There's also slack space--hard drive space 'owned' by a file but not necessarily being used.

If your drive is getting clogged up you can use the windows utilities to clean out temp and browser files. There's also third party cleaners like ccleaner:
