Free utility recovers accidental deletions

Have you ever deleted a file by accident? Of course not. If you're an OS purist like me, you probably eschew system utilities like Norton Utilities, leave NT's Recycle Bin disabled, and smoke unfiltered Camels while topping off the gas tank.

To avert a deletion disaster, install Norton Utilities for Windows NT (http://www.symantec.com.au) or Executive Software's Undelete for Windows NT (http://www.execsoft.com; $US75).

Both of these handy programs replace NT's standard Recycle Bin with enhanced versions that preserve files even when they've been deleted from the system's command prompt or from other workstations.

Still, my favourite utility is free: Emergency Undelete from Executive Software. Though it carries fewer features than Undelete for Windows NT, Emergency Undelete retrieves deleted files from both NTFS and FAT partitions - even if you deleted them prior to installing the program.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
