Hello IT Pro,

Encyclopedia Brittanica, Ingram Micro, Meridian Metals, North Oaks Health System, Trilux, Thiel College, Signal 88 Security, Vail Colorado and Spaceflight Industries. These are just some of the organizations using EveryCloud. If you’d like to join them, get a quote for our email security services here or sign up to our Free MailFlow Monitor here.

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 Free Tool Bundle

Microsoft Sysinternals Suite is all their utilities in one convenient file. Contains all the individual troubleshooting tools as well as help files, but not non-troubleshooting tools like the BSOD Screen Saver or NotMyFault. A shout out to azers for recommending this one.

A Website

Ask Woody is a no-nonsense news, tips, and help site for Windows, Office, and more. You can post questions about Windows 10, Win8.1, Win7, Surface, Office, or browse through their forums. Recommended to us by deeperdownunder.

A Tutorial

Get Started in PowerShell3 is a great jump start video series on starting out in PowerShell. According to sysadmin FireLucid, “It’s a great broad overview of how it works and I found it extremely useful to have watched before starting on the book.”

A Free Service

Draw.io is a free, browser-based diagramming application that’s terrific for creating flowcharts and org charts. It’s available as an online application with optional integration to various cloud storage options.

Another Free Tool

RichCopy is a simple tool written by a Microsoft engineer named Derk Benisch. It provides a much-appreciated graphical interface for the very popular Robocopy command-line utility.

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