Here is where you can download my custom tt utilities.
The tt stands for Tony’s Tools or Tech Tools. These are little autoit programs that I created to help me in my IT job. I’ll include a little description here, and as time permits I may include descriptions and examples.
This tool has 2 parts. The top half is designed to access remote computers. You select the remote computer from the drop down list ( you must configure that yourself) and then you can perform a few functions real quick. This is handy if you support several servers and find yourself opening rdp sessions or computer management frequntly. Note that the CLI requires psexec in the same directory at tt_PocketTech. The bottom part is for “This Computer” or the local computer you are logged into. This is handy when you are logged in as a limited user, and don’t really want to log out at the time. You can run tt_PocketTech as admin by right click and “run as” And then you have quick acces to a variety of control panel items and commands.
Imagine this, you arrive on site to troubleshoot a computer problem. The user isn’t there, but left the computer logged in. You pop in your flash drive and launch tt_PocketTech as admin and perform your troubleshooting. Then you realize you need to configure something on the server so you quickly open a remote session make the configurations and log out. Back at the local computer you exit the program and walk away.
This program quickly gets you some information about your system. It is handy thing to push via GPO to the desktop of your users so when they call you can ask them to launch it and read what they see. It gives you computer name as well as some network information.
This program quickly grabs the latest versions of several free malware scanners. Including spybot, malwarebytes, tdskiller and Sopho’s free command line anti-virus scanner and anti-rootkit.
This is a handy little program that does backups by xcopy. It scans all attached drives looking for a config file, if it finds one it assumes that is the target location to store the backup. This is handy for USB drives that might mount with different letters at different times. It then reads the config file to get the target paths for the backup. One path per line of the config file. It creates 3 versions of the xcopied target appanding the name _Newest, _Older, and _Oldest. The oldest is deleted when a new newest is made. Since it keeps 3 complete copies you need to be certain that you have sufficient drive space. You might also consider NTFS compression. Note: Target drive must be NTFS formatted. Permissions are retained with the copy. This program is ideal for 2k3 or XP machines where ntbackup fall short.
