Simple Note Taking App

One of my favorite applications on my computer is definitely Evernote, but there are a lot of people I talk with that don’t like the complexity it has to offer. They just want something simple that they can use to jot down a phone number or other basic information. For them I typically recommend Simplenote since so many different apps have been created to sync with this free online service.

If you use Simplenote you may want to check out an equally simple desktop application called Notes that syncs with the Simplenote service.

Look like really simple, yet quick and easy ways to jot down notes.

I know I will be checking these out for personal use.

Also, I like the Dropbox idea, so I don't have to worry about copying to a thumbdrive or something to keep with me.

Windows only.

Recuva - A free, easy to use undelete and file recover tool

As you might expect, I have a small collection of useful tools that I keep available for assorted system maintenance and troubleshooting tasks. However, for the longest time I haven't really carried a file un-delete utility with me. Not because there aren't some good ones out there, but more because I never really got comfortable with any of the ones I had tried. I certainly was not comfortable enough to recommend any.

I recently discovered Recuva, which I just added to my toolkit. It's free, it's easy to use, and it's from the same people that bring you CCleaner, which gives added credibility.

I was going through the Ask Leo weekly email newsletters that have been piling up and found his write up about Recuva, in the October 5, 2010 issue.

Check it out and see if Recuva is something you can use for yourself.

According to the page, Recuva "Runs on Microsoft Windows 7, Vista and XP. Including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions."
