PureSync
Backup and synchronise your data with PureSync

Keeping files synchronised in different locations has numerous uses, but it is particularly handy when it comes to backing up files. By synchronising folders, it is possible to define a source folder - such as My Documents - as well as a destination folder - such as My Documents Backup - and the two folders will be synchronised so they always contain the same files. This means that when files are created in My Documents, they can be automatically backed up for you, without the need to remember to do so manually.

This is precisely the task that PureSync has been designed to perform. The program can be used to perform basic synchronisation jobs like the one described, but it can also be customised to filter out certain types of files, to include or ignore sub-folders and create backup folders based on the date of synchronisation.

There are various types of synchronisation available. Synchronisation mode ensures that the contents of two selected folders are always identical, while Backup mode will only copy files from the source to the destination folder. In Mirror Mode, any folders that do not exist in the source folder will be deleted in the destination folder. A special Foto-Sync mode is also available for copying files from a digital camera to a folder of your choice.

Upgrading to the Professional Edition of the program provides access to a number of additional option. These include the ability to synchronise files to FTP servers, as well as saving space by utilising file compression. Private documents can be protected through the use of encryption, and it is also possible to synchronise files from a different user account by executing the program as another user.

Version 4.7.0 brings these changes (see changelog for more info):

- improved some routines for speed and memory usage, e.g. comparing a folder with many files (>10000) is now much faster
- fixed minor bugs

Verdict:

A hugely flexible synchronisation tool that can be put to countless uses.

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.
