Back up, store and share your files

Wuala is a desktop and web service that allows users to securely back up, store, share and access their most important files.

At its simplest, you can use Wuala as a simple form of online backup. Just drag and drop a few digital photos onto the client, for instance, and it'll quickly upload them for you.

Make your Photos (or any other) folder shareable, though, and friends and family can then access your latest shots via their browser. Or you can even create "groups", essentially public folders where everyone can share files: photos, videos, music, whatever it might be.

Your Wuala files can be accessed from Windows, Mac or Linux-based client software. Or you can view them directly from any Java-enabled browser, including smartphones.

The latest version of the program now supports synchronisation between multiple computers - now you can keep folders synchronised on separate machines without having to worry about them being switched on and connected at the same time. Changes are uploaded to your backup space, and then downloaded to your other synced folders when they come online.

If there's a problem, it's your initial storage allocation, which starts off at 5GB. And if that's not enough, then you can buy additional storage - it's actually a little uncompetitive the higher you go, but the 20GB service for €29 a year is perfect for those looking for a cloud-based sync option rather than full backup service.

The brand new "Pilatus" build brings these new features:

- Updated File System Integration on Mac OS X
- wuala:// protocol: Clicking a corresponding link automatically starts Wuala
- Wuala Messages
- Hybrid Device Connection

Verdict:

Wuala is a great choice for those looking for an inexpensive online backup solution with additional features such as synchronisation between computers.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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.
