    W10

    A size of 128 Gb for an SSD should be more than enough. In my case W10 + many programmes + 11 Gb restore points amount to about 38 Gb on the SSD. This might temporary increase to 55 GB when an upgrade has taken place (windows.old still present).
    A few cleaning possibilities are already mentioned. I would add that I disabled file history and windows search (they may occupy a lot of space). For searching much better/faster searching programmes are available (for instance I use Wise Jetsearch). Regularly I image the SSD (Macrium Reflect) and backup the data disk to an external disk. Don't forget to put on the system protection of the C disk. Standard it is set off by Windows, but it may help to recover unwanted changes on your C disk.

    I've just clean installed Windows 7 on a 128GB SSD on an old PC then upgraded it to Windows 10 FCU. The installation is c. 15GB for Windows and a few utilities. 128GB is quite adequate unless you are going to start installing large programs (e.g. games).

    I'd replace that 128 GB SSD with a 512 GB. Then I'd no longer have to scrimp.
    It's cheap, so go for it.
