Running out of space on the C Drive

Hi,
 
 I have a Hyperv virtual machine  computer where the hard drive size is 1.4TB, but with only 19GB of free space. However when I open the C drive and select all the foloders in the root directory of C drive, I see 868GB in size including 18GB Paging file. So  if I do the math, I should see almost 500GB free space. But it only shows 19GB free.  I also discovered that space allocated for Shadow Copy Storage is about 40GB.
So there is something that is taking up space. How can I find out?

Thanks.C DriveC-Drive-Folders.PNG

TreeSize@Andrew,
It shows that C:\Data\Invoice\b folder is taking up 289.4GB.  Thank you for the suggestion.
I have opened a question about this particular folder "deletion" issue on EE:
