Your space ( not memory ) has been consumed by Temp files & other.

I shall start on the Temp files, run this & get back to us.

Amount of Disk Space to Use.
This shows the amount of disk space that will be allocated for your Temporary Internet Files. By default Windows uses 10 percent of your Windows system partition. This amount can be significant if you use the 10 percent model. It is advised that you change this setting to a lower number such as 50 MB.
