Ramp up your PC's performance with this very configurable defrag tool

O&O Defrag is a powerful and highly configurable hard drive defragmentation package.

At first the program looks much like any other defrag tool. Launch it, and you'll be presented with a list of your drives. Selecting one displays the usual mosaic-style map of its file layout. Then click Start and just watch as O&O Defrag reorganises its files to deliver the maximum possible performance.

This is just the start, though. Do you have multiple drives, for example? Select as many as you like and the program can defragment them all, simultaneously.

You don't have to use one particular defrag strategy, either. Instead you can have your files organised by their file name, access date, last modified date and more, whatever best suits your needs. Or if that's not enough then you can set up an entirely custom layout scheme which optimises Windows, application files and your user data to deliver the best possible system performance.

As you might guess, this probably isn't the best choice for the PC novice. But it's not overly complex, either. Once you've set O&O Defrag to work as you'd like, it'll run mostly in the background, defragmenting your hard drive automatically as required, while you get on with other things. And because it's so light on resources, and can be configured not to run at all if your system is busy or other heavy-duty programs are running, it's most unlikely to ever get in your way.

One interesting new feature this time is the option to securely wipe your drive's free space as the defrag works. This enhances your privacy by ensuring that snoopers won't be able to recover confidential files, but of course means you won't be able to undelete them, either, so needs to be used with care.

Business users will benefit from a new Optimize Thin Provisioning tool, which deallocates unused drive space on virtual and SAN volumes.

More generally, there's also improved performance, a revamped interface, and full compatibility with Windows 8.1.

Verdict:

O&O Defrag 17 Professional Edition is a powerful and very configurable defrag tool, that will not only correct existing fragmentation problems, but also automatically optimise your hard drive in real time to prevent them from reoccurring in the future

Retail price for v17 is $29.95

Posted by: Marc Negron, 26 September 2013 12:32

The official retail price for O&O Defrag version 17 is actually $29.95 and not $19.99 as shown in this article currently. That may have been an older price for a previous version.

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.
