Something FREE from Shampoo
http://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/lpa/gift?c=ASH-444LW1
If you can use it, free is always good. :)

Hi bob3160,

Once again a thank you from me for posting this  :D. I tried ashampoo a few years ago but I remember that version being a little buggy, I downloaded it again via your link and I'm testing it out, one thing that is really usefull for me is to be able to print CD 's on my canon printer, I was stuck using canons CD print utility that is to say the least a little old and limited, with this ashampoo I have at last found something more flexible. It does need the printer settings tweaked but hey, it does the job and it does it good. If the burner part works just as good it will replace Nero.

Thanks again for taking the time to find and post the link.

Mart

In pirate speak,

Ahoy matey, tis a goodun yee found there lad, flubber me timbers and shiver me flubber, it makes those covers faster than I can shin up the mainbrace arghh !

I thank yee from the bottom of me boots  ;D

( was capt mart until someone sunk me ship )

I tried this not too long ago, looking for a backup solution...

I liked the program, how it worked and the options :)

However...

I could not get the bootable rescue media to work from my USB key...absolutely no idea why(and the 'wizard' says you can), and no reply in the Paragon section of wilders...

SO, now I use macrium reflect free which, even though I had to use UNetbootin, boots up from the usb key and begins the backup process... :)
(and the archives are slightly smaller)
