Default low disk space??

ok i have 4 partitions across 2 drives, my xp partition is for xp only, nothing else is stored on it, its 19GB, i havent saved/stored anything on it and today it tells me i have low disk space.. 173mb left.. only thing is i cant figure out where everything that is taking the space is.. after checking my folders.. if i click on my documents and settings folder and go to properties it says its 14GB, but when i enter the folder, all the folders inside of it only add up to a couple MB, so whats the deal?

There's paging file, temporary files, other system files that are hidden, and I believe there's other things as well. Download this to see what's taking up all of the space: JDiskReport
