Redo Backup and Recovery 1.0
Quickly back up your entire hard drive

Redo Backup and Recovery is an easy-to-use backup tool that will quickly back up or clone local or network drives.

The program comes in the form of a Live CD (based on xPUD and partclone), an ISO file. Burn it to a CD or DVD with your disc mastering software, and Redo Backup and Recovery additionally contains a further tool that will create a bootable USB drive for you, if you prefer.

However you start the program, it's straightforward to use. A simple wizard walks you through the backup process, choosing the source and destination drives (shared drives on your network are automatically detected), and restoring a backup is just as straightforward. So no need to worry if you're a total Linux novice: we've seen many Windows-based backup tools that are more difficult to figure out.

Redo Backup and Recovery also provides a simple file manager, allowing you to manually browse your system, copying or editing files - perhaps a lifesaver if your PC won't boot.

And an assortment of other useful tools on offer includes a powerful partition editor (GParted), undelete program (PhotoRec) and web browser (Firefox).

Verdict:

A free, easy-to-use and very capable backup tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
