Run out of space on system drive - Server2008 as part of Essential business server set up. - 140 GB Drive TreeSize says no free space but only 43 GB of folders so need to know where space has gone.

System drive (C) is Raid 1. 140Gb, however when selecting all files/folders on the drive inc system/hidden usage is shown as 43.4Gb
System Volume Information is shown as access denied with 0bytes in treesize but in vssadmin it shows - c: used shadow storage space 0 B out of Max 5 GB and d: used shadow storage space 3,417 GB out of 5 GB. Out of Max 5 GB although I have only just reset these to 5GB. Other things checked Pagefile is 8GB and winsxs is 13.5 GB and these are included in TreeSize’s 43 GB.
As yet I haven’t rebooted in case it wouldn’t restart as the only problem used are having is the inability to print. We had a problem with an SQL log file a month or so back but I’ve checked the current logs and there tiny.
Can anybody tell me what have I missed and point me in the direction of finding the missing disk space. Is it possible that somehow a large chunk has ended up in the System Volume Information folder or some other file?
