Get this in your inbox each week

 

Hello IT Pro, 

Each week we're updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy. 

But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops, and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

A Tool

UPC provides Remote User Profile management over local area networks. CalebDK likes it better than PCMover because UPC "will keep profile settings. User has 3 network shares pinned in quick access? UPC will keep those... [it] will re-pin taskbar, keep desktop icon layouts, pinned shortcuts, default applications, etc. PCMover doesn't do any of this."

A Book

Windows 10 for Enterprise Administrators helps build the knowledge to be able to fully utilize the advanced feature set of Windows 10 Enterprise. This practical guide focuses on areas such as installation and configuration techniques, deployment scenarios and management strategies, account management, remote management of Windows Server and Azure Active Directory and modern Mobile Device Management, system hardening and enterprise-level security.

A Free Tool

drive lets you pull or push Google Drive files. After the original version was abandoned by developer Burcu Dogan (who was on the Google Drive team at the time), this handy tool was adopted by another developer in 2015 and is still maintained. Recommended by jwilson8767 because it "makes it much easier to manage items in drive in bulk."

A Free Service

10MinuteMail is another temporary email option, with secure accounts that expire—disposing of any associated emails—in 10 minutes. Perfect for when you don't want your real e-mail address to end up on spam lists. Suggested by hackeristi because "10 min is all I need."

One More Free Tool

Orca MSI Editor enables you to edit the properties of any MSI file. It used to be a part of Microsoft Developer Tools but is now retired. Since finding it within the MS Developer Tools is such a chore, a kind soul has made it available for download as a standalone tool. orwiad10 tells us, "Orca is a great tool for investigating .msi installers. Especially useful for getting undocumented command line install flags for automations." NotHighEnuf finds it "incredibly useful for grabbing product codes for SCCM."

P.S. Bonus Free Tools

RTV is a python-based interface for viewing and interacting with reddit. Suggested by cawfee, who tells us it "works great on a small screen and even on a phone in termux!"

Zabbix is the ultimate open-source enterprise-level software for real-time monitoring of servers, virtual machines and network devices. Recommended by therealskoopy because it's "actually pretty easy to set up and has a lot of great out of the box features like low level network discovery with lldp/ping/nmap and auto-registrations."

 

Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
