LookDisk 6.0
Search drives for files, duplicates, text, more

LookDisk is a one-stop tool which can search your system for files, duplicate files, text within a file, and more.

A well-designed interface means you'll be using the program right away. Simple buttons lead you straight to the function you need, and sensible defaults mean there's no immediate need to go poking around a complicated "Preferences" dialog: finding all the duplicate files on your system, for instance, is as easy as clicking Find Duplicate Files > Search.

If you need more power, though, LookDisk has plenty of configuration options available. When looking for duplicate files, you can specify the drives to search, the types of files to examine (*.jpg, *.zip), files and folders to ignore, file modification times to consider (before, equals, after, or between two times), target file sizes (larger, equal, smaller or between two sizes) and attributes (archive, read-only, hidden, system). As well as the method of comparison (same file name, content, or both).

There's similar control when searching for file names, or text, as well as a few extras. (The text search can display a defined number of lines before and after your text location, giving you its proper context.) But this doesn't make LookDisk hard to use. It may take a while to set up a particular search - looking for all the duplicate JPEGs in your picture folders which have been modified in the last week, say - but you can save this to disc, then reuse it later in a couple of clicks.

LookDisk also includes one or two useful bonus features, scattered around its dialogs. Click Disks Overviews, say, and you'll see a list of your drives and their details (type, capacity, free space, file system, and so on). This also contains an option to find the largest files on any particular drive, very handy when you're looking to free up a little space.

Verdict:

An excellent disk search tool, highly configurable and easy to use.

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.
