Or you can analyze the report yourself. Just click through the pie chart and you can drill down and see how much space is allocated to each directory.
I would also suggest that you backup your data as soon as possible. Having a hard drive with less than 10% of free space is dangerous and can lead to disk corruption and situations where the disk becomes unbootable.

I would also look in to getting a backup drive to hold this data.

One thing you might consider is running a program like TFC by OldTimer. That will dump all your temp files and clear out some additional space. Just make sure you take care of any pending Windows updates first, as it interferes with the TFC program and can result in an error.
After the JDiskReport scan, go to File -> Save Report, give it a file name and then save it somewhere you remember like the desktop. Right click on the File and go to Send To -> Compressed (Zipped) Folder. Then you can upload the zipped file.
You might also want to clear out any old restore points which should clean up a good bit of space. I also drop the allocated storage space for restore points, because in my opinion, Windows tends to use an excessive amount of space for something you rarely use. Go to Start -> Control Panel and then System. Click on the System Restore Tab and then place a check mark in the box that says "Turn off System Restore". Click "Yes" at the prompt to clear the old restore points and then reboot once it's done. After the reboot, turn System Restore back on and adjust the slider down to an acceptable level.
Good luck and keep us updated!

Never mind... Got an error stating the file was too big to upload

Can you upload the file to a sharing site such as MegaUpload or DropBox? Then just post a link here to the uploaded file.
I'm a little confused about the missing 11GB of data just from the computer sitting in sleep mode. Let's wait and see what the scan looks like.

Each one of them was being shown as ~1.6GB, but according to the scan, they are empty. I'm going to contact an expert and see if he can assist. In the meantime, can you do the following that may shed some light on the subject.
Please go to My Computer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> and click on the View Tab. Scroll down and choose "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck the box that says "Hide Protected Operating System Files", click Yes at the prompt and then click OK. Double click on the C:\ Drive and then double click on the ProgramData Folder. Open up the Application Data folder and do a screen shot so we can see what is actually in the folder.
