So I checked out my SSD and what took up so much space. I saw my User was taking up about 67GB, but as I went in and marked all the folders in it, it only came up to 20,9GB, which means more than 40GB just sit somewhere I can't see. Anyone knows what this is?

Found out it was a folder called AppData who held all that space. Is that something I can delete or should I leave it be?

I investigated the files a little deeper, and noticed it was a lot of Adobe files from projects I'm done with that took up most of the space.

shame there is no safe way to move the appdata folder onto another drive. Its generally not a good idea. But deletion info you no longer need out of %Appdata% folder is always an option.
