Uranium Backup Free 9.6
Create the exact backup jobs you need with this configurable utility

Uranium Backup is an industrial strength, and unusually configurable backup tool.

You don't have to get into its complexities immediately (or at all), if you don't want to. Point and click to specify a backup folder or two, choose a destination (a local, external or network drive), one more click and the program will copy your selected files - it's all very straightforward.

If you need more power, though, there's plenty available in the Options dialog. The Direct Copy page, for instance, lets you define when files will be overwritten: options include always, if the destination file is older than the source, smaller than the source, older and smaller than the source, older or smaller than the source, or different from the source (there are 3 comparison methods on offer). You can choose to copy the source files dependent on their date or size, and there are options to copy the NTFS security attributes of your files (or not).

And the scheduler is almost as flexible. You can run particular jobs on particular times and days of the week; on selected days of the month; at a defined interval in days, hours or minutes, or on a specific date and time. And you can prevent the backup running until a file exists, with a particular size or date, or even includes the text you specify.

Again, it's not compulsory to get into any of this, so don't be put off by the apparent complexity. But if occasionally you need some extra backup power then Uranium may be able to help.

Please note, this free version of Uranium Backup does also have some limitations. It can't create disk images; it can't back up to FTP servers, synchronise folders, be run as a service, or create ZIP files bigger than 4GB, and you don't get technical support.

Other versions remove these limitations, and add other features: email backup, SQL Server backup, Volume Shadow Copy support, backup to tapes or optical drives, and more. Prices start at 80 Euros, and you can find out more on the Uranium Backup site.

What's new in 9.6 (see changelog for more info)?

- Drive Image: introduced a new backup procedure on a network path that generates VHD / VHDX files, with full support for EXT3 and EXT4 file systems, incremental backups and rotation. (It is required to recreate the backup to take advantage of the new features)
- Drive Image: introduced the ability to create a recovery disk from the restore menu, also for backups performed with the previous procedure, by completely removing the need of Windows installation drive for bare metal restore
- Introduced support for VMware ESXi 6.7 and Hyper-V 2016
- Improved log recording
- Improved file management with long path in case of FTP / FTPS / SFTP backup

Verdict:

Uranium Backup Free has a lot of power, but some of the limitations - like a 4GB maximum on its ZIP files - may be a problem

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
