Iperius Backup Free
A simple and straightforward file backup tool

Iperius Backup Free is an interesting and very configurable free backup tool.

The program offers a clean and simple interface. You don't have to explore a host of nested menus to figure out exactly what it can do: everything you need is accessible via few buttons.

There are still plenty of options, though. When creating a backup, for instance, you can include multiple source files and folders. A powerful scheduler allows you to run particular jobs on certain days of the week or month, at regular intervals (every 12 hours, say), and even tricky timescales like "the third Tuesday of the month". Iperius Backup Free can also send emails when the backup is complete to report what's happened, and you can have the program launch particular applications before and after your backup job runs.

This is the free version, of course, and so it has some restrictions. The most significant being that the program can't copy open or locked files, so if, say, you run a backup while Outlook is open, then your PST file (Outlook's main data store) won't be included. It also doesn't include a Disaster Recovery drive image, so can't be used to restore a system which won't boot any more. Check the Iperius comparison page for more.

If you just need a straightforward file backup tool, though, Iperius Backup Free could be sufficient: it's small, easy to use and very configurable.

Note that Iperius Backup is now compatible with Windows 8/8.1/10 only.

Version 6.1.0 improvements (full changelog) include:

- Iperius Drive Image: added support for backup and restore of dynamic disks (software raid)
- Restore of individual files from image backups (VHD / VHDX): now you can explore the different partitions of an image backup
- Local or network copy and zip compression: added the ability to keep previous incremental and differential backups for a predetermined number of days.
- Execution of external processes: now the paths stored in the configuration files are encrypted and it will therefore be necessary to save the configuration again
- Several improvements and optimizations

Verdict:

While not overloaded with features, Iperius Backup Free is easy to use and surprisingly capable in some areas

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 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 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.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
