Resilio Sync 2.5.8
Synchronise files across your devices, share with others and send large files

Peer to peer technology has been around for years (remember Napster, anyone?). Simply put, the technology enables users to share data direct, computer to computer, across the internet. The files remain on your system and other users effectively download directly from your computer.

Sadly P2P networking has received a bad reputation over the years as its primary use was to share unauthorised or pirated data. However, the guys behind BitTorrent have gone on to develop a brand new P2P system designed for everyone from enterprise through the consumer.

Resilio is the new technology and Sync is the application aimed at home users. There's a basic free version which will enable an individual to synchronise their data across their devices. As an example, you could make sure your most important documents are in-sync across a PC, Mac and iOS device. There's even support for your NAS drive, if you want to quickly get files to/from the network drive or want to access them remotely.

The Pro version offers additional functionality. The One Time Send function enables you to share your largest files, which could be ideal if you want to send across a file you couldn't regularly attach to an email. The Selective Sync function offers the option for you to select the folders/files you want on certain devices. The Pro version is a one-off cost of $59.99. A Family Pro option, for 5 family members, is $99.99.

For business users, the Sync Business is designed for people working in different locations, enabling people to collaborate on large files, choose which files can be accessed by other users and much more. The Basic Business plan is $29/month for 5 users with 2 devices. Business Plus is $79/month for 20 users with 3 devices, whilst Business Premium is $199/month for 60 users with an unlimited number of devices.

What's new in 2.5.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Fixed Sync reporting inability to download file from remote peer due to being offline
 - Fixed "password_hash" parameter not working on Windows
 - Fixed Sync causing high CPU usage on Mac sometimes
 - Enabled WAN optimization for Sync Business trial
 - Minor cosmetic fixes

Verdict:

Looks promising, but we're not entirely sure how this differs from existing cloud-based tools such as Dropbox (obviously clearly without the cloud element).

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.
