Check Administrative Tools in the Control Panel, Select Computer Management and then Disk Management. This may shed some light.

So apparently the page file is 16GB and the hiberfil.sys file is 12GB. Is it normal? Or if not is there anything to do about it?
And thanks for the handy tool!

Go to Tools, Folder Options, View, and make sure Show Hidden Files is checked. Also, uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files and then try again.
