Split, join, encrypt and hide your files

FileFriend is a tiny portable toolkit which can split, join, encrypt or hide your target files in a JPG.

The program organises its simple interface into four tabs: Split, Join, Encrypt and "JPK" (pack a file or folder inside a JPEG).

The Split function enables splitting a target file into a fixed number of subfiles, or you can just give FileFriend the maximum size of each subfile and it'll figure out the rest itself.

Drag or drop the subfiles into the Join panel later and it'll restore the originals in a click.

The JPK function is a simple tool for hiding a file or folder inside a JPG. Point the program at a target image and the payload files, enter a password and they'll be saved. The same pane can be used by a recipient to view a list of files in the folder, extract them, or remove them entirely (the JPEG is restored to its original state).

An Encrypt function encrypts a file or the contents of a folder using the password you specify.

BEWARE: to decrypt the destination files you must encrypt them again with the same password. If you encrypt with "password", accidentally enter "passwrd" to decrypt, the program will encrypt the files twice, and you'd need to use both passwords in reverse order to restore them. If the second password was a typo, there would be no way to do this and the files would be lost.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it means an attacker also only gets one chance to decrypt the files. But keep it in mind, and only ever encrypt files if you've backed up copies somewhere else.

Verdict:

There are many more powerful file split/ join/ encryption/ steganography tools around, but FileFriend squeezes a lot into its diminutive download, and its convenience, portability and ease of use are all pluses. Take a look.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

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.

November 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 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
