Doing some maintenance and upgrading to my desktop computer.
Currently I have a C dive (500 SSD) and an E drive (2TB for that is used for data) on board with slots for expansion.

My E drive is indicating it is filling up. I went through and move my large Dropbox sync to an external drive for now. Although that was a large chunk of data it made
very little impact on the disk space. Furthermore when I select all the files in the E drive I get a much more realistic number reporting.

Gremlins?
Any suggestion for a good utilitie to dig down into the drive to see what is going on with actual file size?
Recommentions for adding a second data drive...I see 4TB are being offered :)

I use https://windirstat.net/. Also have you run the Disk Cleanup button there in the drive properties? Windows can usually can free up a couple gigs there. Edit: Sorry thought that was your system drive.

Thanks josh...looks like windirstat.net is out of commission.
Must be some hidden files on this drive of some size. Winows 10 sure doesn't make it easy to find those.
