FileWing
FileWing can be used to both recover and securely delete files

Every computer is home to files that are only for certain eyes. There may come a time when these sensitive files are no longer needed, but simply deleting them is not enough to prevent them from being viewed by anyone else that has access to the machine. Using FileWing it is possible to first securely delete the files you would like to ensure did not fall into the wrong hands.

Just deleting files is simply not enough to avoid the risk of data being recovered by someone else, but FileWing can be used to not only delete files but also overwrite them with data. Depending on the amount of time you have available, or its level of sensitivity, you can choose to overwrite data anything from once to 35 times.

But FileWing can also be used for precisely the opposite purpose. As well as making it possible to completely delete files, it is also possible to use the application to recover files that were deleted at an earlier time. It is all too easy to accidentally delete a file you actually need, and if you do not notice straight away, it is possible to empty the Recycle Bin and lose your chance to quickly recover the file.

FileWing, regardless of whether it is being used for data recovery or file deletion, can be used on both local hard drives as well as removable media. This means that it can be used to protect USB drives and even recover photos that have been accidentally deleted from digital camera memory cards.

The Pro version of the program includes a number of additional options. You take advantage of secure free space wiping which helps you to secure the private data that you deleted before installing FileWing. The Pro version also enables you to scour your hard drive for recoverable files, and you can use filters to search for particular files to save you from having to scroll through lengthy lists.

Verdict:

Whether used to securely delete files or recover those you’ve accidentally deleted, this is a very useful tool that can increase your privacy and save your data.

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.
