Almost a year ago I stumbled upon a great bundle of software on the internet. A year later, I'm still using this software on a weekly basis and am bringing you a series of reviews on the software. The bundle I am reviewing, developed by LSoft Technologies Inc., is called Active@ Data Studio.
Active@ Data Studio is marketed as a collection of disk utility software, with "All Disk Tools in One Package!". This bundle is a composition of LSoft's core software, designed for a variety of disk utility purposes, thrown together and sold as a package.
The bundle includes:
- Active@ Boot Disk - For System Recovery Purposes
- Active@ Data Burner - CD/DVD/Blu-ray burner
- Active@ Disk Image - Hard Drive Image & Backup Software
- Active@ Disk Monitor - Monitor hard drive health
- Active@ File Recovery - Powerful Data Recovery Software
- Active@ Hex Editor - Advanced Disk Editor(Hex Viewer)
- Active@ Kill Disk - Hard Disk, HDD/USB Disk Eraser
- Active@ Partition Recovery - Partition Recovery Software
- Active@ Password Changer - Password Recovery for Windows
- ..and their Update Software
Most of this software is self-explanatory in what it does, and as you can see, this package offers a wide range of uses, doing things on your computer that seemed impossible to do without a specialist.
Of the software included in this package, I must say that at the heart of this bundle are Active@ File/Partition Recovery, Active@ KillDisk, Active@ Boot Disk and Active@ Disk Image. These programs are what you're really paying for when you purchase this bundle.
I'll delve into more in-depth reviews on these programs later, but I must say that, a year later, I'm still using some of this software regularly.
In short, these programs can recover deleted files and data; completely wipe a disk from any data, without any possibility of recovery; create reliable backups of your computer and transform a USB into a bootable disk, from which you can start up your computer and do whatever you want from there.
Overall, I would highly recommend this bundle of software to anyone that knows what they're doing with a computer and would like to expand the functionality of their computer, especially with regards to disk utility.
