Windows 8.1 Win folder huge size

My Windows folder in C drive is occupying 50gb of disk space. But the total space used by individual files in that folder adds up to 20gb. Please help me to remove that 30gb

You can download TreeSize Free - Quickly Scan Directory Sizes and Find Space Hogs to see what is taking up space. Most likely system and hidden files are making up the remainder of the space. I would recommned taking a screenshot of the top directories taking up space. Don't just delete random items or you could break Windows.

Also you can try running the disk cleanup utility which will delete items that are safe to remove.
