System Files Lister 1.0
Find out which files are covered by Windows File Protection

Windows File Protection (WFP) is an important technology which monitors system files, and if they're accidentally deleted or replaced, can restore the correct versions. And if you've ever used the System File Checker, perhaps by running SFC /SCANNOW at a command line, then SFC.EXE has utilised WFP to do its work.

If you're using SFC.EXE to try and fix a particular file or application, though, you might occasionally wonder if this is actually covered by WFP at all. Windows won't tell you this, unfortunately, but the System File Lister can.

The program is a tiny (40KB) download, and very simple to use. Just unzip it, launch the program, and it displays all the files on your system which are covered by Windows File Protection. (Getting the full list can take a little while, so you may have to wait for a few seconds at it updates.)

There will be a lot of files here (our test system had almost 15,000), so browsing the list is something of a challenge. You can sort the files by path, though, which may make it easier to find the ones you need, and you can also run a text search for files including particular keywords.

System Files Lister isn't exactly sophisticated, and there are a few extra touches we'd like (the ability to open an Explorer folder at a given path would be convenient, for instance) - but it can still be a useful troubleshooting tool in some situations.

Verdict:

It's extremely basic, but if you ever need to know what Windows File Protection is protecting on your PC then System File Lister will get the job done

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.
