Be careful that you do not go beyond the point of determining the disc size in part one

I have a 120 gig hard drive. I checked my hard drive space on explorer. Properties for C: shows I have 1 gig left. I high lighted all files and folders on the C: drive and checked properties. Explorer came back and said total was 44 gigs. Where could the other 77 gigs be??? Please help me find the missing space.
You're not missing anything.
All you've done is tell Windows to tell you how much space all the existing files are taking up on the disk.
But having said that, if your drive is partitioned then you'll have another drive in My Computer, hopefully of about 70 Gig or something. What have you got in My Computer?

I checked MY Computer and it says I have 111 gigs for C: with 1.46 gigs free and 55.9 gigs for D: with 37 gigs free.
What can I do now?

Click disc management, click D then right click, click explore, see what is shown there
The problem will be if it has got data you need, as C has not got any room for it

Also is D listed in my computer and can you click it there to discover the contents

Nothing appears to be missing on my C drive that I can remember. Its been running for three or four years.

If system restore is on at the default setting then 14.4GB can be accounted for there
Run disc clean up then click more options then click clean up for system restore points to see if it gains you some room
You may want to back up some of the data on D to CDR / DVDR

You may want to clear the restore points more often as the mathematics are incorrect for a 120GB Drive
