Document Metadata Cleaner 3
Detect and clean unwanted metadata from Microsoft Office documents

Create a document in Microsoft Office and you'll often find it includes metadata, information which you might not realise was there: your name, company name, computer details, version information, comments, and more. Windows allows you to remove this from individual documents (right-click > Properties > Details > Remove Properties and Personal Information), but you can also use Document Metadata Cleaner 3 to check and clean your entire system in a single operation.

The program installs without hassle, no adware or marketing worries. And clicking Analyze allows you to start the reporting process. Decide which documents you'd like to check (Word, Excel, and/ or Powerpoint), point the program at a file or folder, click Next, and you'll soon be looking at a list of files, along with some of the data they contain.

Clicking Clean Files then allows you to process them, and you get to decide exactly what to do. There are options to clear the Title, Subject, Keywords and Comments, for instance; reset the Author, Company, Template name, revision count and editing time; and you can remove the revision log, wipe the Recent Hyperlinks list, strip out the document GUID, and more. Select some or all of the options on offer, and you can delete them with a click.

The program's interface isn't quite as comfortable as it should be. When it lists your files, for instance, you can't double-click a document to view it, or right-click to access its properties. And navigation just doesn't always work as you expect (clicking Back won't always take you back to the previous step, for instance).

Document Metadata Cleaner is still a quick and easy way to strip the metadata from a folder or entire hard drive full of Office Documents, though, and if that's something you need to do occasionally then the program could be worth a look.

Verdict:

The interface is a little cumbersome, but otherwise Document Metadata Cleaner provides a quick and easy way to clean metadata from your Office documents

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.
