My 128GB M.2 SSD is only using ~60GB of space, it always says its using around 100GB but today it has been saying it is full, I’ve been using blender and making simulations. Here is an Image to show.

Download & install WinDirStat and then run it as administrator. Post a link to a screenshot of it please.

Windows does not natively show you all the used space so your drive could very well be full.
It seems like there was a bunch of stuff that wasn't showing up, but I moved those to my other drive and now I have much more free space. Here is the screenshot you asked for.

I just realized that my drive says I have 71.5GB used but on WinDirStat it says I have 58.1GB used.

You have 1.7GB of dump files that could probably use going thru to delete the old ones.

Do you have another drive that you could move files to?
Like your WinRar and WinZip archives? no need to keep those on C:
