Free Download Manager Portable
Speed up and optimize your downloads with Free Download Manager Portable

Download managers serve at least two purposes, bot h of which help to make it easier to get hold of files from the internet. The first feature is to speedup downloads by enabling you to download parts of the same file from multiple locations at the same time, helping to avoid server bottlenecks. The second key feature is support for download resumption. This means that if you download is interrupted for any reason, you can pick up from where you left off rather than having to start again.

Free Download Manager Portable is a utility that offers both of these features, but it also has a number of others. To start with, this is a portable app that you can copy to your USB drive and run on any computer without the need for installation. There is also support for not only Flash downloads but also torrents.

Downloads are automatically saved to a folder on your USB drive, but you could opt to change this to a different folder. One option would be to select a folder that is being synchronized using Dropbox or Google Drive so downloads could be automatically synchronized between computers. As with other download managers, downloads can be filtered according to their type and individual transfers can be paused and resumed as required.

Despite the fact that this is a portable app, it is possible to take advantage of browser integration. This is a feature that is disabled by default, but if you are working with the portable version of Firefox you may want to choose to enable it. If you do this, you have to take care to ensure that any locally installed browsers are closed or you may run into problems, but overall this is a competent tool.

Verdict:

Not a program that’s ideally suited to being made portable, but a good enough job has been done to make this worth a look.

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.
