How to clear up some SSD space?

Hello guys. In my custom build, I have a Samsung 840 Series 120GB SSD. It is only showing I have 50GB left on the drive, but I don't know what is using 60-70GB or so. All I really have on the drive is:
Windows(Obviously)
Graphics Card Drivers
Minimal programs and other misc stuff.(usually install programs/software to other drive)

I have already done a "Disk Cleanup", and that cleared up nearly 4GB. If there is any program or such to help you guys see what is on my drive and all to help, or maybe something that can clear up a bit more space? ANY help is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks guys
(Also, I dont know if it is 'normal' to have this much left, but if it is, please tell me.)

Desktops usually benefit from disabling hibernation, adjusting the pagefile and system restore size. Some of us will relocate the "Users" folder to a mechanical hard drive since the data stored in those folders don't benefit from SSD's. Glad you got it taken care of!
