Paragon Go Virtual 1.0 (32-bit)
Easily migrate any physical hard drive or partition to a virtual disk

Paragon Go Virtual is an easy-to-use, free tool that will quickly copy your hard drive to a virtual disk in any of the main formats: VMware Workstation/ Fusion, Microsoft VirtualPC or Oracle VirtualBox.

The program has many possible uses.

If you're upgrading your PC, for instance, you could save your old configuration - operating system, applications, data, everything - to a virtual disk, then continue using it in a virtual machine.

You're able to test potentially risky applications in your virtual environment with no danger of harming your regular PC.

Or, if you save the virtual disk to a USB hard drive, then you'll be able to take it with you on your travels, and access your programs and data from any convenient PC.

Whatever you want to do with the virtual copy of your PC, creating it won't take long. Just point the Go Virtual wizard at your source drive, choose the destination format, and it'll duplicate your system just as fast as your hardware will allow.

If you find Paragon Go Virtual useful then you might appreciate Paragon Virtualization Manager Professional, which can also create virtual disks but adds many more features. The program can connect to a virtual disk so you can browse and work with it, for instance; it's able to partition hard drives, transfer data between any type of virtual disk, and automate program tasks through scripting and scheduling. Normally $99.95, you may upgrade to Virtualization Manager for only $69.95; see the upgrade page for more.
 

Verdict:

There are similar free tools around, but Paragon Go Virtual wins out for its support of several virtual disk formats. This is a quick and easy way to convert any hard drive or partition to the virtual disk type of your choice

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
