    Use "power iso" for creating bootable usb drive with the iso file you have .. It won't work until you creat a bootable usb ..

    FeelHome sounds really cool! Just checked it out. I've encountered many situations where I wish I could access a file from home but I was at the office. FeelHome is exactly what I need.

    I also want to mention two cool tools that are free.
    1) Billing Boss - a free online invoicing tool that currently allows users to create unlimited invoices for unlimited customers. My life has simplified greatly because of this tool, and I'm now able to diligently keep track of who owes me money and who has paid up. I also use their option to collect payment immediately when I send my customers the invoice. I get paid faster now. (
    2) ClickTale - a heatmap and mouse movement tracking tool which is a visual analytics tool for my website. It tells me where my customers are focused on when they go to my website, and I'm able to identify wasted space. (

    And one more - Google Docs. Everyone knows about it, but I have to say that I love using it. It's so easy to share files and collaborate with my staff. (I run a jewelry design business, and am a contractor for Sage Software.)
