5 great Tools for Sysadmins

In this post I will share some of my favorite tools that I think, is must have tools for most system administrators. It is all free tools you can download and use right away.

Install your favorite programs at once with Ninite

If you are often reinstalling Windows on your computer, or maybe install a lot of computers for others, you might find this service very interesting. How about selecting your favorite programs and tools from a list and download a script that install it all at once? Ninite does just that for you, but it gets even better! You will get all the programs you have selected, in the newest version and without any annoying toolbars or useless video players like Real player or QuickTime. You don’t need to pay any money for this service, you don’t even need to sign up for it. Pretty cool if you ask me. You don’t need to click next 400 hundred times and you don’t need to accept all those license agreements that no one understands anyway 🙂 Another great thing is that you don’t need to visit like 20 different websites to install your favorite tools and programs, you only need to visit one.

Sometimes you might need an older version of an App, a tool or a plugin. There can be many reasons why you don’t want to use the newest version, but it can be very difficult to find older version of software even if it is freeware. The reason for that is that most companies want people to use their newest version that often is the most secure version where most bugs are fixed. It is also easier for support matters if all users are using the newest version. It makes great sense to use the newest version of all software you use, but there is times where an older version can be the perfect choice. That is where the website oldapps.com comes to the rescue 🙂 It is completely free and you don’t have to signup or login, you just go ahead and download what you need.

UltraCopier – File Copying tool with play/pause and speed limit features

Today I would share this little review of a great free tool called UltraCopier I came across recently. It is a great free open Source tool for Windows that let you control many things you can’t control using Windows Explorer. In my case, I needed to move a lot of large graphic files across a WAN connection doing working hours. I did not want to take up all the bandwidth because my colleagues was still at work. On the other had I wanted to move the files in small batch jobs doing working hours over a couple of days to make sure that everything went as expected. I remembered that my favorite FTP Client (FileZilla) was able to limit transfer speed, but that is only for FTP transfers. Then I found UltraCopier doing some searching on Google and that was just the tool I needed for my Task.
