Free up disk space using TweakNow HD-Analyzer

Whatever size hard drive you have installed in your computer, it can be surprising just how quickly it can fill up. Whether out of curiosity or a genuine need to reclaim some space, it can be helpful take a look at your drive and determine which files and folders are taking up the most room – you might just find a few candidates for deletion. While this is likely to be an option that is going to appeal to someone with an older computer and a smaller hard drive, it is still a practice that has its place.

The program can be used to scan any drive you have connected to your computer, including external drives, but if you what to limit analysis to the contents of a particular folder, this is also an option that is available to you. Depending on the capacity and usage level of your drive, you are likely to find that the scan takes a while to complete, but if you have opted to scan just a folder, things wil be finished much faster.

The information that has been gathered by the app is presented in a number of ways. A list of folders that have been found is ordered with the largest at the top, while a simple bar graph gives you an idea of what percentage of your entire hard drive this represents. Expand any of the folders in the list and you will see similar bars representing each of the sub-folders – right click a folder to select the option to open it in Explorer if you would like to delete anything to save space.

The program also displays useful information about any of the drives that are connected, listing details such as capacity and the types of features that are supported and the settings that are in place. This may not be a tool you use on a daily or even weekly basis, but it is certainly a handy utility to have around as you never know when you may want to call upon its services.

TweakNow DiskAnalyzer v1.3.0
  •Added support for Windows 8.1.
  •Improved user interface.
  •Minor improvements and bug fixes.

Verdict:

 A useful tool to add to your maintenance toolkit, but one that is not bursting with features.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
