Disappearing hard disk space

  Les T 20:17 24 Nov 2006

Evening folks, i've just completed a disk defragmentation, at the end it said some files could not be fragmented. I viewed the log file and was alarmed to find some rather large files listed on it. When i right click on My Documents (in C:\Documents and Settings\My Name) and select properties it says the file size is 31.5GB, however when i manually count up the contents of My Documents i get a figure of around 5GB, which i would say is about right.
Does anyone have any idea why there is such a large discrepancy between the 2 totals (by the way the difference would explain my missing disk space).
Thoughts and ideas gratefully appreciated.

Can you give the names of these large files?

They are VTS (video) files, i must admit i have been downloading from uTorrent lately.
