DriveInfo 4.5.0.1
A feature-packed desktop gadget for Windows

At first glance DriveInfo appears much like many other desktop gadgets, with a simple interface listing every drive on your system, and displaying its total and free space. Move your mouse cursor over DriveInfo's display, though, and you'll see icons which lead to a host of additional features and tools.

There are simple shortcuts to launch Task Manager, the Lock screen and the Run box, for example. You can similarly open Explorer at any of your drives (or the Windows folder) with a click. An "IP" button displays the current IP address for each of your network adapters, and a built-in power option can close down, log off or restart your PC.

The program also includes a screen magnifier and basic file search tool, while an "auto shutdown" option can close your PC at a specified time.

A simple screen grab tool captures a custom rectangular area of the screen, then saves the results as a JPG, PNG, TIF or BMP file.

A "Startup Manager" lists your Windows startup programs, and provides options to disable or delete any you don't need.

There's even a simple program launcher. Drag and drop your favourite files, folders or shortcuts onto a tiny toolbar and they're available at a click.

Many of these functions are limited, or easily available with a standard Windows hotkey (Win+R to launch the Run box, for example). The program isn't always reliable, either, crashing twice during our relatively brief tests.

DriveInfo does provide much more than hard drive information, though, and if you like configurable desktop gadgets then it's certainly worth exploring.

Verdict:

DriveInfo offers far more features than you might expect. Most are fairly limited, and the program isn't always reliable (it crashed twice during our tests), but if you like configurable desktop gadgets then it's certainly worth exploring.

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.
