    1 - On the first screen: hiberfil.sys, Pagefile.sys etc... : these files are Windows system files, you cannot delete them. However, Hiberfil.sys can be deleted if you are not using Hibernation. By turning off Hibernation, Windows will automatically delete this file. The same for pagefile.sys, it you turn off pagefile, Windows will also delete this file.
    2 - On the second screen: Under Program Data. If you no longer have MobilEdit and Autodesk in your PC then you can delete these 2 folders, otherwise leave them alone.
    3 - From disk management screen, you have: 499MB + 300MB + 17.27GB + 1GB + 128MB MSR (hidden) so it is approximately 19 GB taken away from 128GB (17.27GB is your factory Recovery partition of your Windows Image). That leaves about 100GB usable which is correct.

    Note: In computer world 1K = 1024, so for 128GB SSD, it only shows around 119.2 GB

    4 - 32.5 GB occupied by: Windows system files + Program files you installed + temp files, cache files etc...
