Question Finding things in windows

alright, this is frustrating, I have a partition of say 3. One is my system drive, which is windows components and the like, the other two are for my pc games and photo editing stuffage.

well, Iam pretty peculiar about how much space is taken up on my system drive. i.e i'd like to keep it clean. So, i see it now and it's atleast 3 gigs off from what it's supposed to be and i haven't downloaded much of anything to the physical drive that would take up that amount of space. Any program i can download that archives the actual folder taking up the most space?
