If you had lost some very important data, or if you see that your computer is simply dying, the following recovery tools will be indispensable for you. You’d better burn yourself several of these useful tools before the disastrous thing happens.
SuperDuper is a program that makes recovery painless, because it makes creating a fully bootable backup painless. Its incredibly clear, friendly interface is understandable, easy to use, and SuperDuper’s built-in scheduler makes it trivial to back up automatically. And it runs beautifully on both Intel and Power PC Macs. It is an indispensable tool, specially if your hard drive starts making that horrible clicking noise, your most important day-to-day application isn’t working with the system update you just applied, or you need to restore a stable copy of your system, but don’t want to lose what you’ve been working on, or other similar cases.
When asking a person, who is at a distant location, a quick question most people would prefer a text chat over a phone call. Phone calls (even free ones) lose to instant messaging because of the ritual associated with them, which makes things too complicated. Phone call requires focus and dedicated time from all parties involved, which is difficult even for one-on-one communication and nearly impossible for larger groups. Everybody who ever tried to arrange a conference call knows this.
At the same time, if you want to ask something a person sitting next to you, you will most likely use your voice. If you want to announce something to the people in the room you will just say it aloud.
CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware!
The previous post, Top 10 Freeware Software Nobody Knows About – But Should, has gotten a lot of press – especially from Digg and Reddit. This brought great comments regarding more recommendations for freeware software. Here is a collection of the software that was recommended:
7-Zip is a file archiver with a high compression ratio.
Anim8or is a 3D computer animation program that is designed to allow straightforward creation of animations. You interactively create and edit objects, figures, and scenes directly on the computers screen. The basic interface is similar to most 3D animation and CAD programs, as shown in the following screen shot
AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required!
It’s always a shame when a great program is not heard about by most people – especially when it’s free. Here are the top 10 freeware software that many people still haven’t tried, but definitely should.
If you want to get all those files off your iPod and into your computer, then this is the program for you. In a previous post (Transfer Files From Your iPod To PC For Free) Sharepod was used to show how to freely and easily transfer files from an iPod to PC.
Not only is this a great notepad replacement, it is also a great help for software developers.
If you’ve purchased a new Windows computer in the past few years that’s running Windows Media Center Edition or Vista Home Premium or Ultimate and you aren’t taking advantage of its baked-in DVR Media Center software, it’s time we change that. Why? Because after installing a $70 capture card in your computer and a bit of freeware third-party software, you’ve got all the tools you need to record television shows on your PC’s built-in Media Center, extend that Media Center to your Xbox 360, schedule recordings and stream TV over the internet.
