Default HDD free + used space not adding up.

In addition to my primary HDD (with my OS on it), I'm using a 250 GB WD SATA HDD . It is reporting that it has 112 gigs of space left, out of 232 gigs.

When I highlight all the folders on the drive and hit properties, however, its telling me that I'm only using 85.8 gigs of space.

What is accounting for the other 34.5 gigs?

(I've defragged the disk, by the way.)

Bump. No suggestions?
