That SSD drive is probably overloaded with temp files or something. Check under C:\Users\(your Windows account name)\AppData\Local\Temp. Delete the contents of the "Temp" folder and see how much space it frees up.

I don't really know if these drives "fill up faster" than HDDs. Maybe they do, but my guess is not by much. What is important is to keep in mind certain routines, such as emptying that Temp-folder from time to time.

Also worth noting, that write/delete operations take a heavier toll on SSD drives, than on HDDs, so you have to be aware about the stuff you want/don't want on the SSD. Personally, I roll with a plain HDD. The added benefits ("Pro gamers all use SSD drives!! Come on people!!! Everybody MUST buy SSD drives too!!!!111111111111") aren't really worth the additional price compared to HDDs. In my humble opinion.

But everybody must decide for themselves in the end. Yess, aye lieeke!
