Boxcryptor 2.0
Boxcryptor allows you to encrypt your data before uploading it to an online backup provider.

The news that Dropbox is changing its terms and conditions to allow the company to hand over your backed up to the authorities if required has led to much murmurings of discontent. There’s no doubt that online backup is increasingly popular – and for good reason – but if you’re worried about the contents of your files falling into the wrong hands, you’ll want to consider your options carefully.

There are backup services – like Wuala – that will encrypt your data locally. That means the data is encrypted and decrypted on whichever computer you use to access it, so Wuala and its ilk have no means of accessing your data, never mind handing it over to someone else.

But what if your backup provider encrypts the data after it’s been uploaded? Must you switch to a different provider to avoid being caught out? The answer is, not necessarily. Boxcryptor has been designed to plug the gap: you create an encrypted folder using the program, then synchronise that folder with your online backup provider whoever it is.

It’s all very simple to use: install, set up an encrypted folder, designate a drive letter for it and enter the password you’ll need to access its contents. And that’s it: access the folder through My Computer like any other drive, then simply sync its contents to your online backup provider instead of your insecure folder. Job done.

BoxCryptor for Windows v2.0 brings these changes:

- Importer for Boxcryptor Classic Folders
- Support for Company Package (Master Key, Policies, etc.)
- Support for Windows XP
- Improved Offline Account
- Overall improvements

Verdict:

Quick, simple, elegant. There are other – completely free – methods for encrypting data before uploading it, but none of them are as easy as this.

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.
