Directory Opus 11.7
Handle your files and folders more productively using this Explorer replacement tool

If you work with lots of files, then you’ll soon find that the Windows Explorer can be rather frustrating. For example, you have to open multiple windows to handle a source and destination location for your files, Explorer doesn’t always remember your previous location, so you have to dig deep to find the destination and you can’t worked with tabbed windows, making multiple destinations difficult.

Directory Opus is much different. At a basic level it will replace Explorer. This enables you to quickly and easily open a new Opus window from, say, double-clicking on the desktop in any location, or right-clicking the mouse menu to open a window. You can have single-pane Opus windows, a dual-pane and, of course multiple windows.

The key to Opus is the flexibility of the user-interface. You can customise it as much or as little as you require. Add quick links to your favourite folders, your drives and other destinations. Use Opus to handle your create, open and extract archives. It also enables you to work with FTP sites as if they were local to your computer. Even copy from one server to another.

Once you’ve started using Directory Opus, you won’t want to go back to Windows Explorer. Yes, Opus has a high-learning curve. It’s difficult to figure it out for the first couple of weeks. However, keep configuring and you’ll soon have it exactly how you require.

The new v11 is a major upgrade. See the "what's new in v11" for more information.

Verdict:

One of the best Windows Explorer replacement tools available

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.
