"Properties" showed 118GB was used when my total data's file size was smaller than 20GB in my hard disk drive.

I have just purchased a laptop with a total hard disk space of 500GB.
It have 2 hard disk drive, drive C: and D:.
I had only purchased it about 2 weeks back and I did not save or download a lot of files to my hard disk.
However, I am shocked to find that
under "My Computer", it states that 85.2GB/197GB was used under drive C: and 118GB/243GB was used under drive D:.

 I had opened up my D: drive under "My Computer" and checked out all the folders inside and I am sure the data inside are smaller than 20GB.
How is it possible that the "Properties" of my D: Drive displayed that I had used up 118GB.
Thats a lot of difference!
Can anyone tell me how can I solve this problem/error?
