Have you done a new windows install or service pack update? If so, you can run an elevated comnmand to clean out original windows -- will gain between 5 and 10 gb after cleanup. Do you have a limit on restore points? After awhile, unlimited restore points will also add up, and can be cleaned out.

Just as a follow up... I was looking at the overall picture of the system. We have an administrator and another user. the bulk of the usage is in the administrator so I was wondering how much space is taken up with the other users.

If you got System Restore and Rescue & Recovery enable, and are not using them, you might want to disable them. That should free up some space.
