    I assume you mean HDD space and not Random Access Memory, because 63GB of RAM would be pretty fair for anybody at the moment i reckon!

    But try going to the properties of your C and D drive and having a look there.. Did you create extra partitions on your hard drive??

    Could be programs or games or anything really!

    Go through windows explorer or the mac equivalent if applicable.

    If in doubt restore your system with the OS disk.
