Parted Magic (ISO)
Create, copy, move, expand, shrink or delete partitions

Parted Magic is a bootable Linux-based environment that's primarily designed to handle most partitioning and hard drive-related tasks.

You can format, test or back or drives; create, copy, move, expand, shrink or delete partitions; or securely wipe a hard drive, ensuring any personal information has gone forever.

The system is based on the well-respected Parted and GParted tools, so you can be sure it's reliable. Extensive file system support means you can use it on Intel-based Macs, Linux and Windows PCs (the full list: ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, reiser4, and xfs). And you don't have to install anything to make it work - just burn the download ISO file to a disc, boot from it and go to work.

And there's a lengthy list of additional programs to add further capabilities: the Midnight Commander file manager, TrueCrypt for encryption, ClamAV antivirus and TightVNC-viewer for remote access, along with undelete tools, music players, disc burning apps, an IRC chat program, several data recovery programs and a whole lot more.

Verdict:

An impressive list of tools, packed with essential hard drive, partitioning and data recovery-related functionality. And while some apps require Linux expertise, the core features really don't - Parted Magic will be very accessible to most Windows users, even if they've never tried Linux before

No ISO

Downloaded this yesterday - this is still a zip file

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

Hi Ed, no it's definitely pointing to the ISO, which is "pmagic_2013_05_01.iso"

ISO not evident

The Windows download for this latest version is not an ISO but rather a zip file. Can you fix so that a true ISO is downloaded? Also the version is wrong in the label - it says 2012 and should be 2013.

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

Fixed. Sorry about the date. We've now linked to the ISO rather than the zip.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
