Probably mods should move this topic somewhere else.

Meanwhile http://www.extensoft.com/?p=free_disk_analyzer.

This tool will help you to identify what is hogging all the space :) Maybe temporary folder? Anything big on desktop? Documents? All that stuff is stored in the system drive by default.

What were you expecting? It does not clean up your drive. It just show how much each folder takes up space. You will have to find (using that software) what uses the most space (intentionally or not) and base your further actions on that.

I couldn't understand what it was saying :P

I emailed Samsung about this hopefully they can do something about this.

I found a drive named E and it has 200gb... I have NO clue what that is.

What kind of computer is this? Did you buy something off the shelf with OS already? It might be a recovery partition.

Keep in mind the amount allocated for Recycle Bin (whether it is empty or not) and if/where applicable, System Restore
With that said,
You can use the following software: TreeSize Free

If u found a drive called e and don't have a second drive installed then there's your missing space.
