Aomei Partition Assistant Standard 5.5
Create, format, merge, resize, move and otherwise organise your drive partitions with this free tool

Aomei Partition Assistant Standard is an easy-to-use tool to help you set up and manage partitions on your PC's hard drive.

The program provides all the functionality you'd expect, and some you might not. So you can create a partition, format it, make it active and so on. But you can then also work with existing partitions, copying them, reallocating free space, merging, splitting, resizing them and more.

There's never any confusion, though, as Partition Assistant doesn't hide its features away behind complex menus. Just choose a partition and the Partition Operations panel shows you exactly what you can do: simply choose a function to get started.

And don't be fooled by the "Standard" tag. This isn't some crippled free product where you'll click an option only to be told, "no, you can't do that unless you upgrade". If you see an option listed here, then you'll be able to use it (as long as your drive is suitable, anyway).

The program does still have some limitations, of course. It's short on some of the more advanced functionality that you might expect from the paid competition: you can't undelete a partition, for instance, view drive sectors or carry out low-level operations on a drive's MBR.

And if you need preferential technical support then you'll need to upgrade to one of Partition Assistant's commercial builds.

There's plenty here for a free tool, though, so if your partitioning needs are straightforward then Aomei Partition Assistant Standard 5.5 is well worth a look.

Version 5.5 brings:

New! Create Windows PE bootable media without having to install AIK/WAIK
New! Completely support hard disk with 4096 bytes sector size
New! Fully compatible with Windows 8.1

Verdict:

Partition Assistant is a solid basic partition manager, free for commercial use, with none of the annoying "please upgrade" reminders or hassles that you'll get with some of the competition.

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.
