EaseUS Todo Backup Product Review
Data Backup applications apart from being must-have utilities remain very popular with end-users in spite the fact that generations of Microsoft Windows editions have always provided backup tools that are integrated into the operating systems. So, why users do keep purchasing Data Backup Solutions? Simply, because independent software vendors such as, EaseUS manage to develop solutions that provide enhanced functionality and ease-of-use that Windows inbuilt tools may lack.

Using nvspbind to modify protocol bindings from the command line
In server core environments, the task of modifying and troubleshooting NICs protocol bindings may require the use of a tool called nvspbind which is available from MSDN here. However, the same tool can become very handy when you need to change the network binding order of network interfaces from the command line during the installation of Windows 7, and where the GUI tools are not yet available. Also, you can leverage the tool in environments where the default Windows shell (Windows Explorer) is replaced with other shells such as, command prompt, Windows PowerShell or custom built shells.
