JDiskReport 1.4.1
Where's all your hard drive space gone? JDiskReport will let you know

JDiskReport is an excellent free Java tool which will scan your hard drive and provide a host of useful information about how its space is being used.

This all starts by pointing the program at the folder tree you'd like it to examine, and it then spends a moment analysing your files (and only a moment, really - it's quite speedy, considering what the program has to do).

Then you see the basic report, which shows you an Explorer-type view of your folders on the left, and a pie chart on the right revealing how much each one is taking up. So immediately we could see that, for instance, the Users folder was gobbling up the most hard drive space on our test system, at 69.1GB.

Why? Clicking any folder on the pie chart allows you to drill down, and in a click or two we found that the main culprit was a VirtualBox virtual machine setup, which required 30.1GB all on its own. You'll have your own space hogs, of course, but JDiskReport should still expose them in just a few seconds.

The program does offer alternative views on your files, though. Clicking "Top 50" reveals the 50 largest files in the tree you're examining, for instance. While selecting "Types" shows you which file types are consuming the most space.

And a range of useful configuration options allow you to do everything from excluding particular folders from the report, to defining precisely how you'd like the charts to look.

Please note, JDiskReport is a Java-based tool, so you'll need Java installed before it will work.

Verdict:

JDisk is an easy-to-use and highly configurable tool which provides a host of useful details on exactly how your hard drive space is being used

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.
