PS Tracker monitors disk space. It helps you to be aware of your profile size and thus your hard drive usage. Nowadays, we run out of space easily while working on different projects or synchronizing our mobile device(s); not to mention faster but smaller SSD drives. Avoid unexpected crashes and freezes, as hard drive gets almost full.
