Backing up installed applications before buying a new PC or installing a fresh copy of Windows on the system is always recommended. What if you couldn’t find installers of applications which you are intending to use on new system? Problems get much bigger when saved settings and preferences of important applications have to be ported as well. Apparently, there is no direct way to port installed applications with all the preferences to a new system. You can go for application virtualizers available out there which can make installed applications portable, such as, Enigma Virtual Box
, but we think that you’d be better off using PickMeApp
for this very purpose. It’s a portable utility which is capable of capturing personalized applications with all the saved preferences, so users can easily use them on newly purchased systems without hassling with lengthy installations followed by setting preferences.
In homogenous network environment, transferring files from one place to another is easy once you’ve set up sharing permissions, firewall and other server-client specific settings, but problem arises when you’re dealing with nodes in heterogeneous network, where every other client machine is running different OS platform with respective set of protocols and firewall configurations. In such scenario, preparing each client machine for seamless data sharing will be rather difficult, until you use portable Dukto R4
for transferring data.
While it supports multiple types of OS platforms, the application offers the easiest way of sharing data between systems connected over network. No matter which OS you’re using (Windows, Mac, or Linux), sharing can be initiated without configuring any sort of permissions, firewall, protocols and settings from either ends (server or clients).
It can discover all the connected clients, allowing you to transfer files via simple drag & drop. Apart from transferring files, it also lets you send text messages to connected users while maintaining a log of transferred files and text for verification purposes. In Windows 7, it makes use of taskbar progress bar to let user check the amount of data which has been transferred.

. Unlike previously covered Zeeb
, it is solely written to rename downloaded episode files in one go. It requires you to specify nothing except archive path in order to replace bizarre pre and post fixes in titles with correct ones. It fetches TV serial information from TvDb.com which supports new file naming conventions based on airdate and absolute number of TV serials.

for sharing uploaded images and text/code respectively. It is developed to work from Windows system tray, allowing you to upload image and text in Windows clipboard to supported services.

Compared with previously covered screenshot sharing tools, such as, Ybex Clipborad
, and NoCaps
, it differs in a way that it allows uploading multiple images and text snippets in one go. According to the developer, on copying multiple files, it will upload all of them and generate shareable link for each file.
When it comes to uploading text-based files or selected text, it offers Pastebin supported formats in system tray menu, so you can easily upload and share plain text and code written in HTML, CSS, PHP, C#, and VB.Net programming languages.
Security surveillance systems are, undoubtedly, expensive and one has to fork out hefty amount for deploying one complete security system. If you’re looking for a free, simple, and easy to use surveillance software, give Prog’z WebCamSpy
a shot. It is, however, not comparable to previously covered TeboCam
and Rise Sun
in terms of features and security options, nevertheless, you can use it to focus valuables in your room / office for capturing images after defined interval of time. It was developed to be light on system resources with few image snapping options, including, Continuous Capture, Sequence Capture, and Delayed Capture.
