Is your hard drive on your computer getting full? If you’re like me, you have no idea what it is that’s take up all your hard drive space. With WinDirStat, it’ll scan your hard drive(s) and visually show you what is taking up all your hard drive space. Very convenient! It allows you to backup or delete the files that is taking up most of your hard drive space.

Do you take a lot of photos with your camera or phone? If you’re like me, you wait months before you offload your memory card. By the time I’m ready to offload my memory card, I end up with hundreds of photos.

What makes this app special is it reads the date that you took the photo(s) from the Exif data and automatically sorts them all into their own folder, by date. For example, all the photos you took in June 15th of 2016, will put them into a folder named, “2017_06_15”. That is exactly how I liked to sort my photos before I found this program, but now I don’t have to manually look at the photos, add a folder and move the photos into that folder.

Most of the features that I like can be done for free. But I like to support the developers for creating great software and saving me time. To me, $9 is a fair price to help the development of the software.

Steam cloud save is a pretty nice feature. It will automatically backup your game saves online and sync it with any computer, laptop or Steambox you may have (I love the Alienware Alpha!). The biggest downside to it, and it’s a biggie, is that not every game supports it. GOG (Good Old Games) doesn’t support this feature at all [until recently, but still very spotty on game support]!

The Best Rechargeable Batteries for Your Xbox 360 and Xbox One

You may wonder why Microsoft is still putting AA battery compatibility in the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. In fact, I am very glad that they have!
