I second supaflyx3's suggestion that it's admin access. [Edit: This looks like the case because "System Volume Information" reads as size 0.] Did you run WinDirStat as admin?

The other possibility could be errors on your drive (i.e. run chkdsk and try again), or block sizes. Notice for small files that the "size" and "size on disk" are different?
I never checked which one of the two WinDirStat uses, but if you have a lot of little files (i.e. from doing work with programming), the difference can add up to be quite large.
