XSearch 0.22
A simple but feature-packed file search tool

If you think the Windows Search tool has got worse in recent years, then XSearch might appeal. It's what the authors call a "classic search tool": there's no indexing, no metadata support, but the program does provide a surprising number of ways to locate the files you need.

After entering a part of the file name, for instance, you might decide to search by file size. This could be as simple as looking for files under, say, 25MB. But it's also easy to search for files of an exact size, or files which lie between two particular sizes.

Similarly, if you need to search for files by date and time, you're able to use the Created, Last Modified or Last Accessed times. And again, you can look for files specified on, before or after a particular time, or between two times.

You can also search for files which contain specific words. And once more, there are plenty of options. Enter your keywords, and you can have XSearch return files which contain all, some or none of them; there are "exact phrase" and "case sensitive" searches; you can even search for hexadecimal values, or look for the Unicode or UTF-8 versions of your words.

An Advanced section allows you to decide the type of files you'd like to search (normal, read-only, hidden or system), whether you want to search subfolders, and more.

And there are some useful extras, including optional Explorer integration (right-clicking drives or folders will provide an XSearch menu entry), and the ability to save your more complex searches for easy recall later.


The lack of indexing means it can be a little slow, but XSearch is still a very professional search tool with a stack of useful features

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.
