I would use this to prevent ransomware. I couldn't update my antivirus with this so be warned.

DaVinci Resolve,it's unbelievable such software can come free.
Agreed.

A number that I use or have used:
Advanced Renamer - batch file/folder renaming, very powerful
Autoruns - Microsoft Sysinternals; most probably know of this but I don't remember seeing it mentioned, maybe I missed it
DisplayCAL - one of the best monitor calibration software (if you have the appropriate device for calibrating of course)
FanControl - easy-to-use customizable fan control software, highly recommend this one (forum link)
HCFR - calibration software that is more suited for calibrating TVs (again need the appropriate calibration device)
Hugin - panorama photo stitcher
Logitech Setpoint - if you have certain Logitech keyboards, this will allow you to remap, for example on mine, the home, mail, shutdown, and calculator buttons at the top of the keyboard. It is older software but still works. For example I remapped my calculator key to put my PC into sleep and my home button to run F.lux (with a -noshow modifier)
MPC-HC - many know of this media player, it is without a doubt my favorite. Development is active again.
MadVR - a renderer that allows MPC-HC to use your monitor calibration profile when playing video, among many other things you can do with it
MusicBee - music player that is highly customizable
Speccy - shows basic computer specs in a nice interface; made by Piriform, I don't think its been updated in a few years but it still works fine
XnViewMP - image viewer program; the big advantage of this one is that it's fully color aware. Not many are, I believe FastStone is only partially. I used to use FastStone but switched to this for that reason. With a little tinkering I got the interface to look almost identical to how FastStone looks. I love in particular the ability to customize labels with EXIF/metadata info.
WifiInfoView - made by Nirsoft, shows WiFi signal strength and more

It's not being maintained anymore. MPC-BE is a fork that is being maintained.

I personally prefer the standard XnView. "MP" is a big departure from the intuitive UI that made XnView a joy to use.

One more I forgot about:
PhotoRec (part of TestDisk)
For recovering photos from a corrupted SD card (and other forms of storage).
Somehow last month my camera's SD card got corrupted and I was missing over 100 of the last pictures I took. Some but not all of them would show in the camera, but none of them were showing when the card was plugged into a PC. With PhotoRec I recovered every picture.

Something you won't need very often, but its fantastic when you do need it.

Can anyone recommend a free ftp client. There use to be a Chrome extention called codeanywhere that you had most ftb abilities as well as ability to edit webpages in real time, but its no longer available. Something similar would be great formy use as I maintain occasional updates on 2 sites as well as moving files around. I like the idea of a browser extension allowing flexibility to have access from multiple locations. But a stand alone client would also work. Currently I'm using a Chrome app sFTP on trial and it works ok but trial time is almost up.

I have used ncftp as my default FTP client for the past two decades. There are various clients including macOS, various Linux distros, Windows, UNIXes, etc.

Home updater is free, their other programs are not.

If the two users above were 0 post noobs i'd have hit the spam button, my mod-senses tingled so hard
Hell i found reports of it being a trojan on malwarebytes forums, and it was deemed clean and whitelisted.

I have daily backups so i'm giving it a shot here, but it might be that one rare updater thats not malware ridden trash

Seems legit and neither Kaspersky Internet Security or some of the other Security tools freaked out.
It found Notepad++ and GreenShot to be outdated - which where correct - and updated the apps without any hiccup's - nice tool

I've been using it for years without issue.

I spend hours at my job maintaining the Server environment for our Point Of Sale system and would never use or recommend anything that would be detrimental to its functioning. However, I keep an eye on its changelogs.

Just about anything from Nirsoft is useful.

I'm sure this has been posted before but its worth a reminder. WSCC It puts all of Nir Sofer's tools and Microsoft's Sysinternals Suite (and a few others)in one place. It's frequently updated. The packages are downloaded and updated direct from the Authors site. It's the first thing I add to my Portable Tech Drive.
