Paragon Go Virtual 1.0 (32-bit)
Easily migrate any physical hard drive or partition to a virtual disk

Paragon Go Virtual is an easy-to-use, free tool that will quickly copy your hard drive to a virtual disk in any of the main formats: VMware Workstation/ Fusion, Microsoft VirtualPC or Oracle VirtualBox.

The program has many possible uses.

If you're upgrading your PC, for instance, you could save your old configuration - operating system, applications, data, everything - to a virtual disk, then continue using it in a virtual machine.

You're able to test potentially risky applications in your virtual environment with no danger of harming your regular PC.

Or, if you save the virtual disk to a USB hard drive, then you'll be able to take it with you on your travels, and access your programs and data from any convenient PC.

Whatever you want to do with the virtual copy of your PC, creating it won't take long. Just point the Go Virtual wizard at your source drive, choose the destination format, and it'll duplicate your system just as fast as your hardware will allow.

If you find Paragon Go Virtual useful then you might appreciate Paragon Virtualization Manager Professional, which can also create virtual disks but adds many more features. The program can connect to a virtual disk so you can browse and work with it, for instance; it's able to partition hard drives, transfer data between any type of virtual disk, and automate program tasks through scripting and scheduling. Normally $99.95, you may upgrade to Virtualization Manager for only $69.95; see the upgrade page for more.
 

Verdict:

There are similar free tools around, but Paragon Go Virtual wins out for its support of several virtual disk formats. This is a quick and easy way to convert any hard drive or partition to the virtual disk type of your choice

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.
