UltraSearch 1.8.1
Locate files and folders in a flash with this ultra-speedy search tool

UltraSearch is an easy-to-use free search tool which can locate files and folders almost instantly.

The program achieves its high performance by directly accessing the NTFS Master File Table (MFT), which holds details on every file and folder on your PC. And so it's able to return results immediately, typically in around a second or two, without having to waste time or resources building an index: just enter a keyword and watch the results appear.

But the disadvantage, of course, is that the MFT only indexes file and folder names. So you can't search for JPEG metadata, emails or other file content - it's strictly names only.

In addition, the program only works on NTFS-based drives. You probably won't be able to use it to check the contents of, say, your USB flash drives, as they're likely to use a FAT-based file system.

UltraSearch is still useful for its extreme speed, though. And if you know you're going to spend a while searching only for particular file names, then its inability to show anything else is a plus, as it'll help you zoom in immediately to access the files and folders you need.

Version 1.8.1 includes minor improvements and bug fixes.

Verdict:

While it's not a replacement for Windows Search, UltraSearch can be a useful addition, as the program makes it very quick and easy to search for files and folders by name.

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.
