SFTP Net Drive 2.0.25
Access remote SFTP servers as a virtual drive on your own PC

SFTP Net Drive maps a remote SFTP server to a virtual drive on your Windows PC, so it appears in Computer, and can be used within Windows and applications just like any other drive.

This is surprisingly easy to set up (assuming you have some web space with SFTP access, anyway). Launch the program, enter your server name, user name, account password, click Connect - and that's it. SFTP Net Drive will connect for you, and in a second or two an Explorer window will appear which represents your disk space. And there's no longer any need for an FTP program to upload data: now you can just drag and drop files and folders there, or create them directly.

If you need more control, then clicking the Server Settings button when you're disconnected provides access to a stack of options. You're able to set time outs, for instance, or decide what to do if the connection gets dropped. You might want to choose your preferred root folder on the remote server. And there are options to enable file caching, choose which SFTP files you want to see, the SFTP protocol versions you need to support, and more.

You don't need to get involved in these complexities unless there's a problem, though, so we'd hazard a guess that most people will simply click Connect, and leave SFTP Net Drive running in the background (where it consumed a mere 7.5MB of RAM on our test PC). Overall, it's an excellent free tool which makes it much easier to access and use any SFTP-enabled remote web space you might have.

Please note, if you need more power than EldoS also produce a Professional version with many extra features (you can name SFTP drives individually, the program displays used bandwidth, drives can be managed from the command line, you get tech support, you can use the program on more than 10 computers in a company). Find out more at the EldoS site.

Verdict:

A simple, straightforward tool which makes it quick and easy to access remote servers from Windows and your applications

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.
