Genie Timeline Free 10
Protect your most valuable files with this exceptionally easy-to-use backup tool

Genie Timeline Free is a very easy-to-use backup tool which works almost entirely automatically.

When you first launch the program you'll have to select the destination drive for your backups (a network drive is just fine). You can then check boxes to confirm the type of file you'd like to back up (Office files, pictures, emails, music, documents and so on). And if you want to define specific files or folders to back up then you can do that, too.

Once this is all set up, though, there's no need to do anything else. The program runs when it's necessary (which means when your files have changed and your PC is idle). If it's interrupted, perhaps because your PC closes down or reboots then the program will resume later, just where it left off. And if you need to restore one or two files at some later date, or your entire backup, then the Restore tool makes it easy.

In addition to all this, Genie Timeline Free has been enhanced with plenty of new features.

Backup speeds are twice the speed of the previous version, for instance.

The program is smarter, less likely to store multiple copies of the same file, so reducing backup space requirements.

Explorer folder icons will have a marker to indicate which ones are backed up. And it's now quicker and easier to restore the files you need.

Genie also produce commercial versions of the program.

The Home edition allows you to run your backups on a schedule, and more frequently (every 30 minutes if you like, as opposed to every 8 hours for the Free edition). It supports Disaster Recovery, so you can restore your PC even if Windows won't boot. Backups can be compressed to reduce space, a Game/ Movie mode reduces alerts, and you're allowed to use it commercially.

And the Pro/Server editions provide fine control over which files are backed up, enable you to encrypt them for maximum security, can schedule backups to run on particular dates (and as frequently as every 3 minutes), and are able to shut your PC down once a backup is complete.

Whats new in the v10 edition?

- Updated and fully compatible with Windows 10 latest updates.
- Enhanced Timeline view on the Advanced Restore window.
- Enhanced the Disaster Recovery backup engine.
- Improved Backup Speed.
- New Block Level engine for backing up Outlook.
- Fully compatible with Quad, Octal CPUs and GPUs.
- New Intelligent resources management system that divides all the Backing up, Restoring and Monitoring processes to all the available cores using an Advanced Threading system.
- Identified by the most popular security programs and listed in their white-lists.

Verdict:

Genie Timeline Free doesn't offer the fine control you get with other backup tools, but if it's ease of use you're after then it remains one of the market leaders.

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.
