Open the "My Documents" Folder > Right Click on a Folder > Select Properties > this will tell you the Size of the Contents.

Open that Folder > Point to a File with your Mouse Pointer > a small box will open giving you the size of the file or you can right click and select Properties again.

Are you actually saying ...you think you may have missing GB's ?

If so,system restore is probably the culprit click here

38gb on computer made up of god knows what i only got 2bg of pics in it.

Skidzys link to system restore is most likely,Ive read it can use up to 15% disk space for each drive it monitors.
Treesize can give you a breakdown of other space used.
