Redo Backup and Recovery 1.0
Quickly back up your entire hard drive

Redo Backup and Recovery is an easy-to-use backup tool that will quickly back up or clone local or network drives.

The program comes in the form of a Live CD (based on xPUD and partclone), an ISO file. Burn it to a CD or DVD with your disc mastering software, and Redo Backup and Recovery additionally contains a further tool that will create a bootable USB drive for you, if you prefer.

However you start the program, it's straightforward to use. A simple wizard walks you through the backup process, choosing the source and destination drives (shared drives on your network are automatically detected), and restoring a backup is just as straightforward. So no need to worry if you're a total Linux novice: we've seen many Windows-based backup tools that are more difficult to figure out.

Redo Backup and Recovery also provides a simple file manager, allowing you to manually browse your system, copying or editing files - perhaps a lifesaver if your PC won't boot.

And an assortment of other useful tools on offer includes a powerful partition editor (GParted), undelete program (PhotoRec) and web browser (Firefox).

Verdict:

A free, easy-to-use and very capable backup tool

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
