I've been a subscriber to Windows Mag from long ago and followed this columnist for years supporting her free utilities by buying her CD compilations.  She passed on a few years ago, but her site is still kept alive.
Check it out and add portable utilities you think will make the best of list!
Everything works on all versions of Windows, Visual Basic may be needed.

Had a request from a friend to convert a dynamic disk to basic disk which led me to this piece of freeware: which turns out to work a treat.
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

TestDisk can

Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
Fix FAT tables
Rebuild NTFS boot sector
Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
Fix MFT using MFT mirror
Locate ext2/ext3/ext4 Backup SuperBlock
Undelete files from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem
Copy files from deleted FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions.
TestDisk has features for both novices and experts. For those who know little or nothing about data recovery techniques, TestDisk can be used to collect detailed information about a non-booting drive which can then be sent to a tech for further analysis. Those more familiar with such procedures should find TestDisk a handy tool in performing onsite recovery.

Here's a link to using it to convert a dynamic disk to a basic disk

So my need for a quick solution to Mount ISO images helped me find this one:

 

Virtual CloneDrive from SlySoft

http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html

Features

  • Supports all common image formats such as ISO, BIN, CCD
  • Supports up to 8 virtual drives at the same time
  • Easy to use - just double-click an image file to mount as a drive
  • Virtual CloneDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost.

System Requirements

  • An IBM-compatible personal computer with a minimum 500 MHz Pentium-class microprocessor (1 GHz recommended) and 128 MB RAM (256 MB recommended)
  • Windows 2000/XP/XP64/VISTA/VISTA64/Win7/Win7-64/Win8/Win8-64
  • If you use Windows 2000 or Windows XP you must be an administrator to install Virtual CloneDrive

 

Enjoy!!

Here is another tool that I found useful: Rufus
 

http://rufus.akeo.ie/

Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
  • you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
  • you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • you want to run a low-level utility

Windows and Office Genuine ISO Verifier v.5.3.6.

 

http://www.majorgeek...o_verifier.html

 

Attached File  screenshot_35.png   89.02KB   0 downloads

 

Windows and Office Genuine ISO Verifier allows you to quickly verify whether or not you have an authentic edition of Microsoft Windows or Office. The tool is an easy-to-use way of double-checking ISO images when you perhaps downloaded them from somewhere other than directly from Microsoft. It contains an extensive database of hash values to check against that includes the SHA-1 to relatively old Microsoft releases, such as Office 95 and Windows XP. ​Windows and Office Genuine ISO Verifier will save you the aggravation and potential security risks of installing tampered with versions of Windows or Office.
