DiskInternals ZIP Repair 1.1
Quickly repair incomplete or corrupt Zip files

Zip files are a space-saving and very effective way to archive important files. Until one is corrupted, that is, and you can't access any of its contents. But this doesn't have to be a disaster, at least if you have the right software: point DiskInternals ZIP Repair at the broken file and it may be able to recover all your lost data.

The program is a straightforward wizard, and very easy to use. Just specify the broken Zip, click Next, and you'll see everything ZIP Repair could find: it's as easy as that.

The same technique will often work in other situations, too. If you're left with an incomplete download of a Zip file, say, then ZIP Repair may be able to extract at least some of its contents.

There are no guarantees here, though. Sometimes ZIP Repair will appear to recover files, but they'll still be corrupted, and unusable; and on other occasions the program might not be able to recover anything at all. Still, it does at least give you a chance of restoring your data, and so if you ever store important files in Zips then it's a very good idea to have a tool like Zip Repair to hand.

Verdict:

While it's distinctly short on features and configurability, ZIP Repair is supremely easy to use and generally does a good job of recovering files from broken Zip archives

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.
