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

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%.
