Febees Backup 1.5
Back up local, FTP and even Amazon S3-hosted data

Febees Backup is an interesting backup tool with some advanced features that you'll rarely see anywhere else.

The program doesn't restrict you to local backups, for instance. It works with Windows folders, FTP servers, ZIP files and Amazon S3 buckets, and these locations can be either the source or the destination for a backup job. So you could back up from your hard drive to FTP, from one FTP server to another, from Amazon S3 to your hard drive, and more.

Remote backups can be prone to the occasional error, of course, but Febees Backup recognises that with its "fault tolerance" feature. By default the program will retry up to 3 times per file, for instance, if there's a problem during transmission, and it will accept up to 10 unresolved errors per run before abandoning the job (but both figures can be changed, if you like).

Febees Backup also includes a very powerful filtering system to help choose exactly which files it will select. You're able to include or exclude files based on name, size, attributes, date, and even using regular expressions.

And there's an extremely flexible backup scheduler that lets you choose exactly when your backup job will run: the month, day, day of the week, hour, even the minute can be defined.

Verdict:

Febees Backup hasn't been updated since 2007, but if you need a tool with remote FTP or Amazon S3 support then it's still worth a look

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.
