DiskDigger
Quickly undelete files from almost anywhere

DiskDigger is a powerful undelete tool that makes it easy to recover lost data.

The program is portable, so there's no installation required - it's very straightforward to use. Just run DiskDigger.exe, choose the drive you'd like to check, and in a couple of clicks the program will be scanning for deleted files.

DiskDigger is surprisingly fast, and very soon you'll have a complete list of everything that the program can recover. If this is a large hard drive then there might be thousands of files on the list, but fortunately you can filter this by file name and size (all jpegs that are at least 100KB, say). The program can display previews of some files, too, so it's usually straightforward to locate the data you need. Then just select your files, click the Restore button and DiskDigger will recover them.

If you find DiskDigger doesn't locate your missing documents, then you can always try a disk scan. This bypasses the file system and directly checks each drive sector, which can take considerably longer but will also recover files that can't be found in any other way. It's usually able to recover documents from drives that have been accidentally formatted, for instance (although this does depend on the formatting tool that was used).

Verdict:

A fast, portable, effective way to restore lost files, and a must-have for every PC owners disaster recovery toolkit

However, clearly we've not noticed. We'll update.

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.
