Do you have system restore enabled?
Do you have hibernation enabled (i.e. hiberfile.sys present)?
Have you recently ran a force trim on the drive?
Check and see how much hard drive space the page file is using.
Are you creating any other manual or automatic backups on the drive?
In order to browse for every file present on the SSD you'll need to change the file view settings. If you haven't already done that please do so now.
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. On the top toolbar click "Tools" > then click "Folder Options" > then click "View"
3. Scroll down to the hidden Files and Folders radio button and make sure to select "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and remove the checkmark from "Hide Protected Operating System Files"
Now, assuming that you don't have multiple partitions on the SSD, all of your files and folders should be in the "C" drive location. Open up Windows Explorer again and navigate to "C" drive. Double click and open up the C drive folder. Place your mouse in any empty spot of that folder and right click. That will open a menu box. One of the available options is to "Arrange Icons By"
Arrange your icons by size either ascending or descending. Start by picking the folder that is largest in size. Open that up and repeat the above steps (arranging icons by size). Continue repeating this drill with all subsequent files and folders until you find the one that is stealing the largest chunk of space from your SSD. You may have to repeat these same steps multiple times until you can identify the culprit.
One other recommendation I'd make is to download and install CCleaner. Run that app before you run through all this file searching drill down. That way you're left with things that really need to be investigated instead of .temp/.tmp/.bak/windows logs/temp internet files etc. that will be effectively removed once you run CCleaner.
If you don't want to go through the trouble of resorting all of your files and folders by size, there is a fairly easy and intuitive little app called Treesize that can do it for you.
