Where's My Stuff Personal is a handy organizational tool for those of us plagued by cluttered drives, although getting started each time is a lengthy process. Its basic, uncomplicated GUI is set up in a user-friendly tree format, and the program automatically goes to work scanning and categorizing your hard drive immediately following installation. Though it took a while, the application categorized our files within their respective application types such as finance, Microsoft Office applications, Internet files, multimedia audio files, and graphics files, and it can scan other drives for floppy and CD content as well. The only irksome factor here is that the program requires this lengthy scan each time you start it up. Modifying the categories is easy and you can sort from within each category by size, file type, and oldest to newest. Impressively, the program can zip up files, delete mass groupings of useless files, and log file activity. If you haven't been able to locate some long-lost file, Where's My Stuff can help you track it down.

Where's My Stuff is a Windows graphical program that helps you locate, organize and use files more easily and efficiently. It reduces Windows frustration, makes document and other file handling easier and gives you more confidence when finding and managing files. It allows you to process lists of files in ways you would otherwise have to purchase many other utilities to do (recover wasted disk space, compress/archive old files, backup import).
