Got it!  Thanks a lot.  Any idea what is happening?  Does Gandalf need some donations to keep going?

No idea - I'd visit his site and ask him but he hasn't replied to messages in some time.  Perhaps he's devoting more time to work, family, and so forth.  My observation is that most of the folks creating these rescue PE .ISOs are doing it in their spare time and are sharing the fruit of their creative process with us.

In any event the previous links I posted were for Gandalf's x64 WinPE, below is the link for his x86 (32bit) version, dated 03/05/2018.  It's not the latest version, but it's all I can find.

Best of luck!

Thanks to Bob.Omb for his work!

Yes, these point to the gandalf pages, but I don't find any download links.  I had registered at windowsmatters and show as logged in.  Someone had posted he didn't find a download link.  Sorry to be a bother.

It appears to be available in a two-part download at the below URLs.  You'll have to click through a few things and type in some numbers to verify your organic existence, but that's the only place I could find it - or them, now.  It downloads as two .RAR files.

Best of luck,

Hello all! First, I'd like to thank Bob.omb for his fantastic work on this Win10PE.

<rest of message deleted>

Thank you for your product too, Jayro!  Both Bob.Omb and you deserve many more thanks and accolades than you receive.

... that the hardest thing about getting a Windows PE seems to be actually downloading the damn thing.

Tried for over an hour to find a valid link for Gandalfs PE. Gave up and tried this one.


Contemplating just telling this customer just to rebuild his damn computer rather than continue trying to reset his lost password lol

There are literally a half-dozen or more bootable images that contain password reset programs and little else.  Some are as small as 50MB.  I know this because several are sitting in my "Bootable Repair Disks" directory.  Now, that's still too big to file-attach for you, but they are out there.  I'd post a link but I don't want to test the patience of our gracious hosts.

Core update is complete, updating applciations tonight... if you want it as soon as possible you may have to wait for the updated USBTool, is everyone ok with that(tonight)? or would you rather wait for new usbtool(maybe another day or two)?

Hey, it's your show boss.  You decide when it's done and we'll dig in.

Will the USBTool run under Win7, or just Win10?

Before you use ForceTrim.exe find out why OCZ that created the tool abandoned it
it is no longer supplied by OCZ for a reason

It was an early utility (around 2010) supplied by OCZ that was pretty generic and not brand-specific, as far as I can tell.  It was eventually rolled into their all-in-one SSD utility that ran the trim function immediately, did ROM/firmware updates, and so forth, and was limited to just their brand of SSDs.  I think Toshiba has bought OCZ since then and the all-in-one SSD utility has move even further into brand specificity.

I like Tweak-SSD it work for me :)

Tweak-SSD did not improve my NVMe's performance nor my SATA-3 SSD's performance.  Its trim function required purchasing Tweak-SSD, which I decided not to do as I already had ForceTrim.exe, and it worked for me on all my SSDs under Windows 7.  Windows 8 or 8.1 and above support running trim immediately when you use the defrag function on an SSD, so neither ForceTrim nor Tweak-SSD was necessary for that use in those cases.

That's the story I pieced together from my internet searching.  I had presented this info to Bob.Omb via PM.

No it is Tweak-SSD

Okay, got it.  I'll give it a look.  The above-mentioned ForceTrim.exe works for me; it's only 449kB and is a stand-alone executable.  It was written in 2010 but has worked safely on my Win 7 system, both on an NVMe drive and a standard SATA-III SSD.

Thanks for all your work.

I found a SSD specific utility that enables/disables trim w/optimization.  It will be in the HDD Tools> section of the Start Menu in the next release along with the already included defrag utility...

Would that be ForceTrim.exe, by any chance?

First, thank you for hosting this site!  :)

Is it safe to ass*u*me that this site will now replace the previous Bob.Omb's.Win10Rescue site as the center of discussion and distribution?

Please consider putting the Windows defrag utility back in...

Well, "back in" as in "like in normal Windows 10."  Win 7's defrag util doesn't trigger the trim function, but Win 8.1's does.  I ass*u*me that Win 10's defrag does too.  In any event, its presence would be helpful in Win10Rescue.

Thanks for replying, and for building Win10Rescue.  Thanks to Dr. Dimensional for hosting this site.

Please consider putting the Windows defrag utility back in - it triggers the TRIM feature in SSDs (rather than actually defragmenting them).  This seems like a useful feature worth keeping.

Again, thanks for your efforts and generosity in creating and releasing Win10Rescue  :)
