Passware Encryption Analyzer Free 3.7
Scan your PC for encrypted or password-protected files

Passware Encryption Analyzer is an interesting tool which will quickly check your PC for encrypted or password-protected files (over 200 file types are supported).

If you use encryption yourself then this can be a useful reminder of where your protected files are located (and might, perhaps, point out files you've forgotten to encrypt).

And Passware Encryption Analyzer can also help you check that PCs you manage are being used as you expect. Are other users of the system trying to hide files by storing them in a password-protected zip file, say? Running the program can help you find out by revealing any encrypted files you didn't know about.

Whatever your reason for running Passware Encryption Analyzer, it won't take long to figure out how the program works: just choose the type of scan, the drives or folders to check, click Scan My Computer and it'll begin to check your system. This can take a while, but password-protected files are listed as they're found so you can get at least some feedback right away.

The finished report can be surprisingly lengthy, in part due to Passware Encryption Analyzer's thoroughness. You may find several PDF files listed, for instance: they'll probably open as normal, but the program is just pointing out that they have some security restrictions imposed (you may not be able to print them, for instance).

The real power here is reserved for the full commercial version of Passware Encryption Analyzer ($295), though, because that allows you to right-click a protected file and recover its password right away (and it can scan and work on network drives, too). You can install a free trial version to see how this works, though - find out more on the Passware site.

Verdict:

An interesting tool, particularly if you need to check a shared PC to make sure none of the other users are hiding content from you

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.
