    Thank you so much for making this list. Out of these particular choices, the only one I knew about before was DVDVideoSoft Free Studio. Like ayhan, I would have included the Everything search engine from Voidtools, since I find it close to indispensable. Even so, you’ve done a fantastic job of selecting all this especially helpful freeware and gathering it into one place.

It’s actually a sync utility, and better at its job than the paid alternatives I’ve tried. If you’re interested (maybe in preparation for an update of your article), you can take a look at
