Ok, not so much a utility, but a nice trick for the lazy in you:

Shutdown and Reboot Shortcut on the Desktop:

Shutdown icon
Right click to create shortcut
Location= shutdown -s -t 00
Click next
Enter name
Finish

For reboot= shutdown -r -t 00

Ycopy
You ever start copying a folder and then an error pops up telling you that one file in the folder cannot be copied and then the copying stops then you gota find that orupt file that cant be copied and it screws up the whole process of copying that folder?

Enters Ycopy:

Ycopy is a free file copy / data migration utility. In short it is a utility that helps you copy files from one disk to another. When it encounters a file it can't copy it makes a note of it and then moves on to the next file.
