Drive C: space limitations with 128G SSD

HP Recommended
HP ENVY All-in-One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I hve an HP Envy All-In-One which has a 118.01 GB SSD drive c:. with less than 2GB of free space. I store nothing other than apps on this drive and I am frequently see that the capicity is in the 'red'. I have tried all the usual way to free up space. Is there any way to create more free space on drive c: without compressing the drive or uninstalling application?

@PugwashXP,

Your a tad vague on the model #.  Win 10 OS only takes about 20G of the hard drive.

Sorry for the lack of detail. My system is:

HP ENVY 27-b170na All-in-One PC, Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD, NVIDIA GTX 950M, 27" Touch Screen

The problem is that the system drive is full (only 1.88 GB free) and I suspect that there are related performance issues. The space is used as follows:

Apps and Games (59.9 GB). As I am a programmer there are many apps that I use regularly; the largest is MSSMS at 1.96 GB); Cyberlink Power Director at 1 GB and the next largest is 501 MB).

System and reserved (46.4 GB)

Other (5.69 GB)

 

Is there a straightforward way to free up more space?
