Added those two, along with Duplicati, which I recently started using. Windows/Mac/Linux support, backs up via FTP, SSH, network drives, SkyDrive, Google Drive, amongst others, has a built in scheduler, and also encrypts.

Just had a quick trawl through but unless I missed something there's no free disc burning program anywhere.
Is there one?

I just installed Sonic DLA as I needed to burn something in a hurry and although it worked it blue screened me so it's coming straight back off.

Now, what I`m with isn`t it, and what`s `it` seems weird and scary

Obviously too quick a trawl.
Thanks. cdburn looks like it might be the one to go for.

I plead late submission of accounts to accountant in mitigation.

I've seen treesize before, but today I was introduced to spacesniffer

it's tiny so you can copy it onto your box and try to work out why you have no space left :)

As this thread was started in 2012 I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for disc cloning software. Is Clonezilla still the program to use? I have done this once but it was so long ago I have forgotten how I did it. I don't mind buying software if its easy to use. I would like to buy a 1tb SSD to replace a 250gb SSD in my laptop.

Thanks all.

EDIT
This is the one I was looking at, £79.99 for the size looks like a bargain.

You definitely don't need to pay for disc cloning software!

I would recommend Macrium Reflect:

It's what I used when I migrated from Win 7 to Win 10, and prior to that from my 512gb to 1tb SSD.

on another forum ppl were warning off ccleaner as since it has been bought by avast seems to push other products too hard.

I got annoyed by it installing its own web browser which becomes default browser and launches on startup. maybe you can stop it doing that in the ccleane rinstall, but it wasn't obvious if you can. it's basically a custom versio of chrome, but seemed more sluggish to me and didn't seem to live up to their hype.

anyway, a few ppl mentioned using Privacy eraser instead:
