as wishmaster said your only saving a few seconds of load time with steam if it's not on the SSD, and then your disc won't need to be accessed much for gameplay

Here is what I see:

1. "Files" with 14GB is not normal. Since it shows only 2 files in there, there might be a Windows.old in there that you do not need. Open "Files" and let's see what's in there.
2. Check the size of the restore points (shadows). Open Command Prompt (Start > Accessories> Command Prompt > right click on it and open as administrator) and type or paste the following command into the black window: vssadmin list shadowstorage and hit Enter - then see how much space is allocated in C.
3. If you do not use hibernation, you can save a few Gigs by deleting the hibernation file. In that same Command Prompt, type or paste powercfg.exe -h off and hit Enter. The saving should be equivalent to the size of your RAM.
