Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.5
Recover lost files from hard drives, scratched CDs, lost partitions and more

Power Data Recovery Free is an unusually powerful file recovery tool with many more capabilities than are typically available in similar free applications.

So, of course, it includes an undelete module to help you recover lost files. This is very fast, though; works with HFS+ as well as FAT12/16/32 and NTFS files; has an in-depth knowledge of many file types to improve your chances of recovery; allows you to filter discovered files by file name, size, creation or modification tiles; and is able to preview files before recovery, in many cases, so you can confirm you've discovered the right document before you restore it.

Power Data Recovery Free can also cope with lost or damaged partitions, though. So if you've accidentally deleted or formatted a partition, or Windows simply doesn't recognise it any more, that's not a problem: the program will scan the drive anyway and recover any files that might remain.

Maybe you've lost data on a backup CD or DVD which has been scratched, or accidentally formatted? The program also understands the ISO9600, Joliet and UDF formats and will do its best to recover as much data as possible.

And there's also a Digital Media Recovery module which focuses on recovering audio, photo and video files from memory cards, MP3 players, digital cameras and more. Other tools can do similar things, but again Power Data Recovery Free's attention to detail is impressive. It doesn't just scan for JPG images, for instance: the program also understands and can recover 10 common RAW image formats from manufacturers like Canon, Kodak, Nikon, Pentax and Sony.

Verdict:

An excellent free undelete tool, one of the best around - just a pity it isn't portable

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.
