PC Tools File Recover 8
Scour your hard drive for accidentally deleted files with this powerful undelete tool

PC Tools File Recover 8 is a fast and effective undelete tool that will help you quickly locate and restore accidentally deleted files (though please note, this demo version allows you to preview deleted files only, not recover them).

The program is easy to use. Just tell it where to look for your deleted files, if you know where they were stored, and choose your file type. (There's support for many more formats in this latest version: video, music and graphic file types, databases, email containers, archives, and a host of documents.)

You can also filter by file size and name, which helps keep the final list of matches down to a manageable size. Then one click on the Scan button, and File Recover goes to work, scouring your hard drive for deleted files.

PC Tools say this version is significantly faster than its predecessors, and sure enough we didn't have long to wait before the program returned with its report.

This splits the recovered files into their various file types, so if you're looking for digital photos, say, just click the "JPG Image" section and scroll the list of files. They're sorted into alphabetical order, and have thumbnail previews available, which makes it easy to find the ones you need.

And once you've purchased a licence for the program, you're able to click Recover and bring back your selected files from the dead. Until then, you can only confirm they're still available and probably recoverable, unfortunately: clicking the Recover button on the trial version will only demand that you "Register now".

Verdict:

File Recover is an excellent undelete tool. It's a pity that the trial version is so restricted, though

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.
