The space on the system disk of my Windows 7 system, as shown by with Treesize Free (free download from JAM Software), ran in Administrator mode:
15.6 GB Windows
6.4 GB System Volume Information (that's system restore, and volume shadow copy if enabled)
5.2 GB files in the root folder (swapfile and hibernation file)
4.5 GB in Program Files
1.4 GB in Users (5 users, only the minimal data, Documents and such moved to another disk)
1.1 GB in Program Data
972 MB in MSOCache (MS Office installation data)
427 MB in Recovery (no idea what it is, but it seems related to Windows)
320 MB in Temp (a folder I made myself)
56 MB in $Recycle.Bin (recycle bin)
11 MB in BJPrinter (related to my Canon Printer)
3.1 MB in Intel (related to my motherboard)
0.1 MB in inetpub
That makes 35.759,6 MB in totally.
As it's a 64 GB SSD I think it's fine as it is. No need for cleaning the system restore area and my Temp folder yet.
Now tell how your disk space is used, using the same tool, so we can see if there is anything unusual.
