Free up disk space using TweakNow HD-Analyzer

Whatever size hard drive you have installed in your computer, it can be surprising just how quickly it can fill up. Whether out of curiosity or a genuine need to reclaim some space, it can be helpful take a look at your drive and determine which files and folders are taking up the most room – you might just find a few candidates for deletion. While this is likely to be an option that is going to appeal to someone with an older computer and a smaller hard drive, it is still a practice that has its place.

The program can be used to scan any drive you have connected to your computer, including external drives, but if you what to limit analysis to the contents of a particular folder, this is also an option that is available to you. Depending on the capacity and usage level of your drive, you are likely to find that the scan takes a while to complete, but if you have opted to scan just a folder, things wil be finished much faster.

The information that has been gathered by the app is presented in a number of ways. A list of folders that have been found is ordered with the largest at the top, while a simple bar graph gives you an idea of what percentage of your entire hard drive this represents. Expand any of the folders in the list and you will see similar bars representing each of the sub-folders – right click a folder to select the option to open it in Explorer if you would like to delete anything to save space.

The program also displays useful information about any of the drives that are connected, listing details such as capacity and the types of features that are supported and the settings that are in place. This may not be a tool you use on a daily or even weekly basis, but it is certainly a handy utility to have around as you never know when you may want to call upon its services.

TweakNow DiskAnalyzer v1.3.0
  •Added support for Windows 8.1.
  •Improved user interface.
  •Minor improvements and bug fixes.

Verdict:

 A useful tool to add to your maintenance toolkit, but one that is not bursting with features.

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.
