My Top Three Free IT Utilities on My USB Flash Drive

While thinking about the usefulness of data, I started to ponder about the tools that I use in my daily IT ops and their overall utility as well. The following covers the top three free utilities on my USB flash drive that I use in my daily IT ops:

  1. PuTTY – a free implementation of Telnet and SSH.
  2. DAEMON Tools Lite – a virtual disk emulator used to mount virtual disks and make image files.
  3. SiSoftware Sandra Lite – a system information, diagnostic and benchmark utility that runs on Microsoft Windows Platform and Google Android Platform.

Do you agree or disagree with my list? Am I missing a tool that I should have on this list? Let me know.
