neoSearch 2.50
A simple and straightforward search tool

neoSearch is a desktop search tool for Windows which promises super-speedy performance. "Advanced algorithms make indexing a breeze", writes the author, claiming that "searching happens in the blink of an eye".

The reality was a little different, at least on our test PC, especially with indexing. You can launch this manually, which is useful enough (there's no background component tying up resources), but even though the program claimed to only be indexing a part of our drive, it still took a very long time to complete.

The search experience was a little better. Simply type a part of the file name (neoSearch can only look for file and folder names, not content) and the top six matches appear immediately. We would prefer to see all the matches, but if you keep typing then the file you need should appear in the list eventually.

You can also use wildcards in your search. The program can index files on network shares (although we would expect that to take even longer). And you can launch it at any time by pressing Win+S, conveniently (so the regular Windows Search remains available just as before).

There are problems here, then, but neoSearch isn't entirely unappealing: it looks good, once your drive is indexed then searching is speedy, and the approach of displaying only the first few matches does at least keep things simple. If you need a faster way to find files by name then it just might be worth a try.

Verdict:

Indexing takes too long, but once this is complete neoSearch proves a speedy search tool

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.
