I've got something like 100 gb unaccounted for on my 1 tb drive which is apparently only 900something gb (don't know where all that other gb is but whatevs)

I was hoping to find any file redundancies or whatever. There's like 10 gb for .tmp files but I don't know what they're temporary for and if I should delete them.

If you really would like to know why Windows is reporting less space than you expected, go read up on gibibytes and tebibytes as those are the proper names for the storage units Microsoft uses.
Hmm...
