Protect your drives and recover files with Disk Drill

Your computer may be valuable, but the data stored on the hard drive is likely to be irreplaceable and therefore almost impossible to place a value on. Losing files due to accidental deletion or hardware problems could lead to a hefty bill if you end up calling in data recovery experts, but if you can get things under control yourself, you stand to not only save money, but also time and worry.

Disk Drill is a data recovery tool that can be used to protect your data against loss for a range of reasons. The Recovery Vault is used to monitor your files and constantly back them up, so in the event of hard drive failure or file deletion they can be quickly restored. The program should be viewed as a data loss prevention tool – if you need to recover files you have already lost, you will need to upgrade to the paid version of the software.

The application can also be used to keep an eye on the data generated by SMART drives. Growl message can be generated to alert you if you hard drive starts to get too hot, or if anything else changes that might be indicative of a potential problem.

Disk Drill is available in both free and Pro versions, with the latter offering more advanced and varied data recovery options. Working with the free version of the software, it is possible to perform scan to determine just how much data could be recovered, and this could help you to decide whether or not to upgrade to the paid version of the program. Should you decide to make the move to the Pro edition, you also have the option of scanning your drive for recoverable files and restoring them from partitions that do not have a file system.

Verdict:

An impressively powerful tool, albeit somewhat limited in the free version, but one worth checking out.

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.
