FBackup 5.2
Use this free tool to keep your most important files backed up

Backing up your most important files seems to be far easier on a Mac. The supplied backup program enables you to choose certain applications to backup, choose a destination, schedule the backup and then this procedure is carried out routinely, without intervention.

On a PC, it seems far more cumbersome, probably because there are so many different Windows applications, it’s not just as easy as wanting to backup your Windows Mail and then leaving it to backup in the background.

FBackup is a simple free backup tool that attempts to make backup easy on the Windows platform. You simply select the type of files and applications you want to backup, your destination and then let it proceed. For example, you can quickly select ‘My Documents’, ‘My Pictures’ and ‘My Email’. If you then suffer from a system crash in the future, you simply select the same components and restore. Of course, you don’t have to wait for a system crash. If you move computers, restoring data to the new computer is an ideal way of moving files between the two machines.

You can create a compressed backup (ie. files within a ZIP), schedule a backup, choose to backup to multiple locations and much more.

The only thing you can do is backup to a remote server. This is a shame as many of us have spare online server space as part of our homepage or broadband account. It would have been good to backup online and then quickly select this content when we need to restore in the future.

Version 5.2 brings these changes:

- Interface is now available in German
- Added "Jobs with warnings" filter in the Navigation pane
- Scheduled jobs now show an extra-icon in the main job layout view
- Added new tag for "Scheduled jobs"
- Jobs and tags are sorted alphabetically by default
- In Card and List view mode you can do multiple selections using the keyboard
- Notifications window completely redesigned (new actions, redesigned icons)
- Total Backup time is now included in the log
- Layout actions were renamed
- All notification messages can be configured to display collapsed or expanded
- Show number of jobs in status bar
- "List index out of bounds" when dragging filter checkboxes
- Type of source is included in the log file
- Minor display fixes for radio buttons and tray icon
- Installer text corrections
- "Try Again" after cancelling an installation didn't work

Verdict:

Keeps your essential files backed up, but only supports local backup destinations

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.
