Take care of your hard drive with Uniblue MaxiDisk 2013

Windows’ defrag tool is a fairly simple utility, and if you want anything slightly more advanced, you’re going to have to look elsewhere. There are a number of defragmenters that you could choose from, but if you view defragging as part of your overall system maintenance routine, it makes sense to take advantage of a tool that is part of a larger suite. Uniblue’s PowerSuite is an impressive collection of tools that have been designed to help you to improve and maintain the performance of your computer, and MaxiDisk is one of its components.

The application has three main sections, one of which - Gain Space - can be used to analyse your hard drive and determine how you can free up space. While disk space is not at the premium it used to be, having too much clutter on your drive contributes to it being inefficient. In addition to tracking down junk files, the scanner will also detect old backup files and enable you to compress large files to free up space.

Once you have maximized the amount of free space available on your drive you can turn to the Defrag section to help ensure that our files are optimally organized. This is a fairly simple set up and there are no options to configure – all you need to do is to set the analyser running and within a short space of time you will be provided with a report about the state of your drive. You can then decide whether or not to go through with the defragmentation.

One of the most important aspects of system maintenance is getting into a routine. Keeping on top of various tasks means that there is far less chance that your computer’s performance will deteriorate to an annoying level and MaxiDisk includes a scheduling option that can be used to automatically defrag your hard drive on a regular basis.

Note that the trial version only offers basic defragmentation support - no scheduling. Purchasing removes these limitations and MaxiDisk is part of Uniblue PowerSuite 2013.

Verdict:

As part of a larger maintenance suite, this is a valuable tool, but looked at individually it is slightly limited

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.
