Parted Magic (ISO)
Create, copy, move, expand, shrink or delete partitions

Parted Magic is a bootable Linux-based environment that's primarily designed to handle most partitioning and hard drive-related tasks.

You can format, test or back or drives; create, copy, move, expand, shrink or delete partitions; or securely wipe a hard drive, ensuring any personal information has gone forever.

The system is based on the well-respected Parted and GParted tools, so you can be sure it's reliable. Extensive file system support means you can use it on Intel-based Macs, Linux and Windows PCs (the full list: ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, reiser4, and xfs). And you don't have to install anything to make it work - just burn the download ISO file to a disc, boot from it and go to work.

And there's a lengthy list of additional programs to add further capabilities: the Midnight Commander file manager, TrueCrypt for encryption, ClamAV antivirus and TightVNC-viewer for remote access, along with undelete tools, music players, disc burning apps, an IRC chat program, several data recovery programs and a whole lot more.

Verdict:

An impressive list of tools, packed with essential hard drive, partitioning and data recovery-related functionality. And while some apps require Linux expertise, the core features really don't - Parted Magic will be very accessible to most Windows users, even if they've never tried Linux before

No ISO

Posted by: Ed Cornish, 14 May 2013 21:09

Downloaded this yesterday - this is still a zip file

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

Hi Ed, no it's definitely pointing to the ISO, which is "pmagic_2013_05_01.iso"

ISO not evident

The Windows download for this latest version is not an ISO but rather a zip file. Can you fix so that a true ISO is downloaded? Also the version is wrong in the label - it says 2012 and should be 2013.

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

Fixed. Sorry about the date. We've now linked to the ISO rather than the zip.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
