Run Scandisk on it.
It may well be that the hard drive is dying and has failed to a point where it may not be possible to get anything off it.

After doing the math (111gb + 9gb=120gb) it sounds like you have two partitions. Is there more than one partition on the drive?

you can try to gain a little space

start/control panel/system/system restore/uncheck system restore setting/move slider to about 3%

if you can dowload and run this

go to my computer/right click/select properties/put check in compress drive to save disk space/click ok/this can be a long process/

then defragment your computer

and check into a second partition
who knows you maybe just using a small partition and not c:drive
