Try going to your Add/Remove programs window and clicking on "Sort by size".
Should give you an idea.

You can manually do it by going into your ssd and checking different folders and sort by size. That's what I'd do, after removing any unwanted game and such ofcourse via CP.

The feature in Advanced Systemcare 5(beta) works great for this type of thing. It's a great program for misc. other things as well.

Personally, I'd recommend reinstalling windows entirely w/ a custom version of the OS so it doesn't usage as much space on your SSD... But sometimes that's just too much hassle.
