Handy Recovery 5
Recover accidentally deleted data in a flash with this powerful undelete tool

Handy Recovery is an unusually powerful undelete tool which can recover files that similar programs might miss.

That doesn't make the program complex, in any way. Often you'll just launch it, choose a drive, browse to the folder containing your deleted file, view it (with a preview window) and click Recover: simple.

But if you need more, then Handy Recovery has plenty to offer. The program works with a huge range of file systems, for instance.

FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32 support means it'll work with old floppies and most memory cards. There's FAT64 (ExFAT) support, too.

Handy Recovery works with NTFS drives of course, and NTFS5 + EFS support means it can recover files even if you've NTFS encryption turned on.

And you even get HFS and HFS+ support, so you're able to work with Mac OS-X drives and recover whatever data is still available.

Handy Recovery has a deep understanding of many file types and their formats, which helps to improve your recovery chances. The file types supported include 7z, CAB, RAR and ZIP; ISO and NRG; MDB, MNY and MDF; PDF, HTML, RTF and XML, as well as images, Microsoft Office documents, email containers, videos, audio files and much more.

And the program is packed with professional features. It allows you to save and work with an image of a hard drive, for example, eliminating any possibility of your recovery efforts accidentally deleting the very files you're looking for. Handy Recovery can also recover alternate data streams, and offers a sector view of the drive if you need it.

Please note, this trial version can recover only one file a day, 30 in total during the trial period - so choose your candidates wisely.

Verdict:

Handy Recovery appears expensive in comparison to the free tools around. But it's also vastly more capable, with many more features and abilities. If nothing else can recover your lost data then this just might be able to help

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.
