AxCrypt 1.7
An easy-to-use encryption tool

Installing a firewall, antivirus tool and spyware detector will keep many external dangers locked out of your PC, but they don't make you entirely secure. Anyone who has access to your system can still browse all your most confidential files, unless you encrypt them with a tool like AxCrypt.

The program is surprisingly straightforward in operation. It doesn't require any configuration, at all. If you want to encrypt a file, just right-click it, choose the new AxCrypt menu and select one of the Encrypt options, enter your passphrase, and that's it. The file will be protected with AES 128-bit encryption, and no-one else is going to view it unless they know the passphrase.

AxCrypt makes it unusually convenient to work with encrypted files. If you want to view an encrypted document, just double-click it as normal, enter your passphrase and it'll be displayed in the associated application. Change the document and it'll automatically be re-encrypted, too, so your data will stay protected with the absolute minimum of hassle.

The program also includes an option to convert your document into a self-extracting file; email it to a friend, and they can use your passphrase to view the contents. A "Shred and Delete" option will securely wipe a confidential file, making it virtually impossible to recover the contents. And support for files larger than 4GB means you can be sure that AxCrypt will be able to protect all your files.

Verdict:

Quick, simple, effective and free, this is the perfect choice to encrypt your private files

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.
