    KLS Mail Backup


    I've been using KLS Mail Backup on my wife's system for a month or so.

    When I converted her system from XP to Win 7, I backed up her Windows Live Mail on the XP system, loaded in Windows 7, ran Windows Live Mail enough to get it to set its directories, then did a "restore" of the backed up XP mail. Worked like a champ - brought everything in except the passwords - all the contacts, rules, mail, and accounts.

    Works great on 32 bit systems, don't know about 64 bit ones.

    From the site blurb:

    •Backup:
    Windows Mail profile and Windows Contacts
    Windows Live Mail profile, Windows Live Contacts and Windows Live Messenger Files
    Outlook Express profiles and Windows Address Book
    Internet Explorer Favorites and Internet Accounts
    Mozilla, Seamonkey, Thunderbird and Firefox profiles
    Postbox profiles
    Opera profiles
    The Bat! profiles
    IncrediMail profiles

    •Backup to: local and network drives
    •Standard ZIP compression
    •Full and incremental backup mode
    •Flexible restore options

    KLS Mail Backup - Freeware Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Firefox backup

    Freeware for personal use

    Using a public scripting engine, GFI Backup 2009 allows you to back up programs settings for various applications such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Outlook email, Outlook Express email, Thunderbird, Eudora, Windows settings and Address Book.

    I can confirm that GFI backup works fine with X64 Windows 7 and that it also includes a folder synchronize option which can be useful for those with a desktop and laptop

    Just tested this on 64 bit, seems to work fine.

    PCalc


    I've used freeware from AnalogX for years. I just noticed after some inactivity, the site and programs have been updated. My favorite is a small programmer's calculator called PCalc

    I've been using it since Win9x but the new version has been reworked to avoid some Vista/W7 compatibility issues. Also some features, such as remembering screen position, have been added.

    You don't need to be a programmer to use it. Instead of the Gui that looks like a hand-held calculator with number and operation buttons, you just enter a formula into the input line. It uses C syntax but it's not rocket science.

    For example to add the product of 255 and 50 with the product of 12 and 75 you would enter: (255 * 50) + (12 * 75) and hit the Calculate button. The result in various formats can be copied to the clipboard using one of the 'c' buttons on the right, and pasted into the next calculation.

    There are other freebies on the site including some networking tools, system, and music utilities.

    I've tried the new PCalc on W7 build 7077 and Vista64 SP 1. Works fine.
