Solved Big problems with self-decreasing disk space on C partitio

My problem is that my disk space of my C partition is decreasing drasticly quick. Adding up all the folders and other files from the specified partition I realised that I have like 40GB of space that I don't know How could they have possibly gone. Yes, maybe there are hidden system files but I defenetly think that they don't occupy all that space. I'll give you an example:
Today I had to work on windows office. Before starting I had 9GB of free space. After finishing I had only 2GB of free space. The question is why was that space occupied so quickly and why do I have so many GB that I don't use but that are occupying my disk space. All my downloads, documents and programs are in my other partition. I don't put ANYTHING in my system partition. I would like some explanations and maybe some solutions.

Run the portable version of Treesize free. It will show you exactly where the space is being used.

I would guess System Restore is taking a good chunk along with your page and hibernate files.
