Default drive space available, inaccurate

not sure if this should go here or software...but i was using tmpegnc to encode a mpeg to divx...well program hung and i had to close and my C shows i have 5gb left , when i had 65gb before then. Raptor 74gb. if i do properties on it, it shows 68gb used , yet if i highlight all folders in C:\ and do it..onlys shows 20gb used, which is right. how do i fix this?

Right Click c:>properties
disk cleanup (next to pie chart)
let it load and a big amount should be in the temp folder


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

You can use this program: JDiskReport to find out how much space is being used on your drive and where.
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
