WinZip for Windows 8
Create and manage your archives directly from the Windows 8 start screen

WinZip for Windows 8 (and RT) is a capable app which allows you open existing ZIP and ZIPX archives, or create new ones, then makes it easy to share them online.

The program presents files and folders using a clear, touch-friendly tile-based interface which fits in well on the Windows desktop.

And although it doesn't have the functionality and power of WinZip's desktop client, the app still has the key tools you need. So you can zip up files or folders, add password protection to restrict access to your archives, or lock the world out entirely by making use of WinZip's military-grade encryption.

Use this kind of tool on the right files and you can save an enormous amount of disk space, which could be useful if you're running short.

The real benefit of WinZip for Windows 8 probably comes in its ability to securely share files, though. The program neatly integrates with the Windows 8 'Share' charm, and in just a few clicks (or taps) you're able to safely send your confidential files via Facebook, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and more.

It is also relatively expensive, though, requiring an annual $7.99 subscription following your initial 15-day trial. Most people will probably be better off looking elsewhere.

Verdict:

It's expensive, but otherwise WinZip is a polished archive manager with some useful security and file sharing options

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.
