If you are a IT Pro/Dev with Microsoft Technologies, I am sure that you must be aware of SysInternal tools. Formerly these tools were part of NTInternals, which was renamed to WInternals and finally Microsoft aquired this company and released them as part of Microsoft Technet website as “Windows Sysinternals“. These amazing tools were developed by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell.
- File and Disk Utilities
- Networking Utilities
- Process Utilities
- Security Utilities
- System Information Utilities
- Miscellaneous Utilities
One interesting thing about these tools are that they are also available in a Shared Folder on Internet. If you always want to use the latest version of these tools, then you can map a network drive as shown below:
Using the NET USE command one can map easily to the Shared Folder. Please remember that you must have a Internet Connection to do this. The same can be done using the Map Network Drive option from Windows Explorer. Once you do this, you will get a Drive Letter (specified by you; in my case it is L: drive) in your Windows Explorer as shown below:
Did you notice the total size and free space of C: Drive and L: Drive above? Its just a coincidence
All my PC’s usually have latest version of Sysinternal tools in either C:\Utils or D:\Utils folder. With Sysinternal Live, I can even run these utilities directly from Internet. Thanks to Mark Russinovich for providing these amazing utilities.
