Disk and File Recovery Tools

I've used R-Studio in the past (Commercial):

But recently, I've been using TestDisk (Open Source):

The best bootable USB\CD version I've found is SystemRescueCD (Open Source):

There are plenty of guides on how to use it on the site, but be careful, it can make changes to your disk that make the problems worse! If you're unsure, read the documentation and seek advice in the forums.

Unable to send document as attachment from Office 2010

On a Windows 7 x64 machine with Office 2010 x64 installed, I had an issue with not being able to send documents via email.

After looking around for a while, I found this thread:

The fix for me was to:
  • Click Start
  • Type Default Programs
  • Click Set Your Default Programs
  • Click Microsoft Outlook
  • Click Set this program as default
I can now Save&Send documents as atrtachments.
