MiniTool Partition Recovery 5.0
Easily locate and restore a lost partition

MiniTool Partition Recovery is a free (for personal use) tool which can help you find and recover a lost partition.

The program works with regular hard drives, USB and other removable drives, and supports the FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT, NTFS and NTFS5 file systems.

It's wizard-based, and so very straightforward to use, at least under normal circumstances. On launch you'll be prompted to choose the drive with the missing partition; then you're able to specify the area to check (the entire disk, unallocated space, or whatever range of sectors you need); and after you've selected the Scan mode, you're done. The program scans your drive, reports on any missing partitions, and you can restore them in a couple of clicks.

Of course occasionally things might not be quite so straightforward, but MiniTool Partition Recovery has a few extra options which might help.

If it can't find your partition with the default settings, for instance, run it again using the Full Scan rather than the Quick Scan. It's more thorough (if also vastly slower) and may find your data.

Or if you've found more than one partition, just double-click each one to explore its contents, an excellent way to verify that the program really has recovered your files.

There is also a limitation here, in that you don't get a disaster recovery disc, so if your system drive partition is damaged then you'll have no way to recover it.

Otherwise, though, MiniTool Partition Recovery is effective, easy to use, and a straightforward way to restore lost partitions.

Verdict:

A capable and effective tool for restoring lost partitions

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.
