Have you run any security programs lately.
Maybe a defrag might help.

With those specs it does sound suspect I'm with buteman on this one.

When you ran Disk Cleanup, did you delete Shadow Copies as well? If not, do it click here

Do you have your laptop to automatically backup? Change settings if enabled click here

Do you have your laptop setup for hibernation? If yes, disable it click here

What security programs did you have installed when you noticed the shrinking drive space?

A free tool like TreeSize click here could help you determine what is hogging all that space. G
