Select files for transferring within TeraCopy

Copying and moving files within Windows is such a mundane, everyday task that it’s easy to assume it’s the best it could possibly be. The truth is somewhat different: when it comes to copying files – particularly a large number of files – Windows is pretty mediocre. You could be saving yourself seconds – even minutes – each time you copy files from one drive or folder to another by taking advantage of third-party software.

TeraCopy is one such program that bypasses the Windows shell to take full advantage of the drive technologies on offer to optimise your file transfers. It offers a lot more than just speeding up file transfers too: pause and resume file transfers – perfect if a long transfer is interfering with other Windows processes, for example. When two identically named files are encountered, you can also configure the program to behave a certain way by default (such as renaming one of the files or not overwriting).

The program also intelligently handles file errors: it will attempt to re-copy the file a number of times before moving on to the next one instead of throwing a hissy fit and abandoning the entire process. Again, you control how the program handles these errors, and if failures are encountered, TeraCopy will list them after the file transfer is complete, giving you options to deal with them. You can even test and verify files both pre- and post-transfer, adding an extra layer of protection to important files and folders.

This portable version works as a standalone application – if you want to use TeraCopy in place of Windows’ own copy/move functions, install the full software instead by clicking the link below.
 

Verdict:

Speed up file transfers and improve the way Windows copies and moves files with this free application.

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.
