Acronis True Image 2015
Backups are easier than ever

Acronis True Image 2015 is the next generation of Acronis International's popular backup tool.

The core of the program remains as before: it's a powerful way to back up anything from individual files and folders, to single partitions or entire hard drives, either locally, to external drives or the cloud.

True Image 2015 now features a completely revamped interface, making the process as simple as possible. It's all very tablet-like, with large graphics sliding in and out as you click, and once you've chosen your backup source (which can now be as simple as clicking "Entire PC") and destination and you're ready to go.

Of course there's plenty more power here, if you need it. Click the Options button and you can set up a backup scheme and method (full, incremental, differential), exclusion rules, password protection, validation, pre and post-backup commands, email notifications, a schedule, maybe even wake up a sleeping computer to run your backup job.

A new deduplication system for online backups then ensures True Image doesn't back up duplicate data blocks, which Acronis says improves speeds by an average of 10%.

Recovery is easier, with a simplified Media Builder (create Acronis and Windows PE discs from one interface) and optional recovery via wifi.

"Universal Restore" means the program can take a backup from one PC and restore it to any other (subject to hard drive sizes, of course), regardless of manufacturer, making it useful as a migration tool.

This 2015 release also sees quite a few features dumped, unfortunately: Acronis Extended Capacity Manager, .tib <> .vhd Backup file conversion, Disk Editor, Boot Sequence Manager, File Shredder, Import and export of backup settings, Try&Decide and Mail backup have all disappeared. With this in mind, 2014 users should either remain with 2014 or get the 2014 edition whilst it remains.

Verdict:

The new interface looks good and it's great to see a boost to online backup speeds, but the loss of many of the bonus extra tools might annoy a few.

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.
