  1. As the one person who's responsible for the unpaid maintenance of ten or so computers belonging to family and friends, I'm always looking for ways to make my life easier. To that end, I install free versions of CCleaner and Speccy on all the computers. The model I'd prefer is to not install any Piriform product on any computers because although they make things easier in some respects, they add to the maintenance load, needing to be updated almost every time I hold an, infrequent, maintenance session on each computer. None of my family or friends uses them. What I'd prefer to be able to do is to run CCleaner and Speccy from a USB memory stick. That would have the advantages of my being able to pay a modest sum to Piriform for these excellent products, and not needing to install ten sets of software. At the moment, the choice is between using free versions, or buying ten licences at GBP 25 each at a cost of GBP 250, which is far too expensive. The exact sum isn't relevant: ten times anything is going to be a lot of money. How about it, Piriform?
  2. Somehow, I managed to delete a folder containing about 100,000 photos which are stored in OneDrive. Recovering them is hideous because OneDrive only allows you to restore the files which are presented in the Web interface, about 100 at a time, so it's not very practical, but fortunately they're also in the PC's Recycle Bin, so I used Recuva. It was brilliant, and recovered about most of them, but I still need to recover the several thousand from OneDrive. What would be really useful at this point is to be able to save all the information in the Recuva interface into a csv so that I can use sort and filter in Excel to identify them, but the text file saved in Recuva only lists the files' paths and sizes, not the status or the other information, so I'm going to have to keep the Recuva interface open while I work through the overwritten files, and if I close it, I'm stuffed because I'm now of necessity overwriting the disk space previously used by the deleted files.
