People keeping track of these things will remember that Piriform, the privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows, updated three of its applications so they provide support for Windows 7 SP1 (Service Pack 1). The applications in question are CCleaner, Defraggler and Speccy.

On the 24th of February Piriform rolled out CCleaner 3.04 to add support for Windows 7 SP1 (as a little sidenote, the latest CCleaner version is 3.05 which is fully compatible with IE9 and Firefox 4). Then on the 1st of March Piriform updated Speccy to version 1.09, adding Windows 7 SP1 support. And then on the 14th of March it announced that the Defraggler 2.03 update adds support for SP1 as well.

But besides these three applications, there is a 4th Piriform-developed application – Recuva. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it’s is a data recovery tool for Windows that can bring deleted files back to life. Yesterday, the 28th of March, Piriform announced that Recuva has been updated to version 1.40. With the release of Recuva 1.4, all of Piriform’s products now provide support for Windows 7 SP1.

Besides support for Windows 7 SP1, Recuva 1.4 adds support for BartPE as well. “This release of Recuva has been updated with a focus on user-requested features. Many system and support admins need to recover data from system drives that won't boot, so we've added support in this release for the very popular BartPE - to allow Recuva to be used in even more useful ways!” explained Piriform.

Shifting away from Piriform and putting the spotlight on Microsoft, if you didn’t get Windows 7 SP1 by now, you should get it. It comes with security updates, stability updates, and performance updates. Microsoft describes SP1 as “an important update that includes previously released security, performance, and stability updates for Windows 7. SP1 also includes new improvements to features and services in Windows 7, such as improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices, printing using the XPS Viewer, and restoring previous folders in Windows Explorer after restarting.”
