New Computer Build, Losing almost an entire GB of SSD space a Day

I had a new rig assembled and given to me within the last 5 days and I've noticed an alarming disappearance of SSD space per day. Did a quick Spacesniff and Treesize and this what I've discovered. Any advice on what's going on? Its been 5 days and I already noticed 40GBs of space vanish on my SSD

Mega Quick Update: Just went through some of yalls tips for freeing up space and I found out my SSD was allowing 50% system restore point allocation @.@ Should my pagefile be 16GB?

it is generally thought that system restore should be turned 'off' with an SSD.

this is just one google hit (out of 757,000)

Hard Disk Space - Free Up and Recover

No ssd should be defragged.

I do not turn off restore point. I do control the size of the total volume of the restore points set at 5%.
