Defraggler 2.18
Optimise your hard drive's performance with this fast and free defragger

Use your computer for some time, writing files to and from the hard drive and the drive will become fragmented. The larger the drive, the worse the fragmentation. When fragmented, the drive will take longer to scan the the contents, meaning that your computer takes far longer to boot, applications seem to take an age to open and you may hear more drive access normal.

Bad fragmentation can also reduce the life-span of your hard drive as it means that the drive has to do more work locating and loading the files. Fragmentation happens when the drive stops saving files in a logical order. Run a defragmentation analysis and you may see files located in different positions on your drive.

To solve this problem, you need a drive defragmentation tool and there are few better than the free Defraggler, from the same developers who brought you CCleaner and Recuva. Defraggler is designed as a once-only defragmentation tool, so you’ll run the application from time to time to keep your drive in shape. Other commercial defragmentation tools can run on your computer, in the background, keeping your drive defragmented on the fly. However, as long as you plan on defragmenting your drive every three months or so, Defraggler will be all you need.

In addition to defragmenting an entire drive or drive partition, you can also defragment files if you find that only small section of files are stored illogically. This saves time as defragmenting a 500GB drive can take hours.

Defraggle v2.18 adds:

- Added Disk Performance graphs to Statistics tab.
- Added Quick Optimize for SSD.
- Added ability to view information for different drives when an operation is in progress.
- Improved Health tab loading speed.
- Added new scriptable /UPDATE parameter for background updates. (Defraggler Professional only).
- Improved detection of files without extensions in File list tab.
- Minor GUI improvements.
- Minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

Defraggler is a straightforward and very configurable defrag tool.

This has to be my favorite defragging software of all time. The thing that I initially loved about it is the option to select whatever files I wanted to defrag. See what needs to be done and you're not just sitting around for hours wondering what 'a' defrag program is doing like the windows default defragger. In other words you had a CHOICE.

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.
