Paragon Backup & Recovery 17 (64-bit)
Create drive or file-based backups with this versatile backup program

Backing up your data is essential. With the rise of Ransomware and similar tools which can encrypt your data, unless you're prepared to pay the ransom, your files are lost forever. Backup your system partition, along with your most important files and the easiest way around a Ransomware situation is to simply wipe your drive and restore your data.

But, you need a backup/restore tool and preferably one that ships with a recoverable media builder. One such option is Paragon's Backup & Recovery 17 Free which, as its name implies, is a free version of the commercial tool from the same company.

Backing up your data is relatively easy and is wizard-driven. After choosing the drive or files you'd like to back up, select the archive destination which can be a local or network drive, a disc or another external device. Unfortnately, with the Free edition, there's no facility to backup to the cloud, so you can only store your files offline.

What is included is a comprehensive scheduler, meaning your backup job can be automatically run at system startup, logon, daily, weekly or monthly.

Also included is a a File Transfer module, which enables you to store files from another location, such as a network drive. You can simply choose the individual files and folders you want to migrate and the destination and Backup & Recovery will do the rest.

Restoring data from backups is easy. You can either restore an entire drive backup, your individual files and folders or use the supplied media recovery tool to create a bootable recovery disc which you can use to restore when you can't get back in to your computer.

Amazing, the Free version now includes incremental/differential backup support, which is ideal if you're backing up a lot of data each day. It means the system doesn't need to backup files which were unchanged since the last backup, saving a lot of time.

Verdict:

Paragon Backup & Recovery 16 Free is a decent enough basic backup/restore tool.

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.
