USB Image Tool 1.70
Create and restore backup images of USB flash drives, MP3 players and more

The USB Image Tool makes it easy to create backup images of USB drives. These can include flash keys and similar portable devices (MP3 players, digital cameras and so on), and version 1.60 now adds support for non-removable devices (regular USB hard drives, memory card readers, more).

Operation is even simpler in version 1.60, as there's no longer any need to manually launch the program as an administrator; it'll prompt for the necessary rights. After that, once the interface appears you'll see any USB storage devices that might be connected; choose one, click Backup, specify the source destination and folder, and it'll be saved for you: easy.

Images can be saved in a Favorites list, for speedy access and restoration later.

A useful Device Mode displays useful information about your USB drives, including their file system, size, free space, and an Identifier that often tells you the drives manufacturer.

Version 1.60 adds a new "Reset" option which overwrites the drive's boot sector, causing Windows to reformat the drive with its original size. This may be useful if you've restored,. say, an 8GB image to a 16GB USB key, and now wish to restore your drive's original capacity. (But of course you'll also lose the current contents of the drive, so be careful.)

And all this comes in a very small (under 500KB), portable package, which is easy to use on most Windows PCs.

The USB Image Tool is small and simple, then, but has more than enough functionality to help keep your USB data safe: recommended.

Version 1.70 fixed "the bug, that caused the troubles with version 1.67 and Windows XP. Version 1.70 now requires .NET 4.0 again, but also supports Windows XP. I also fixed the option for scrolled output in the command line tool."

Verdict:

A simple but effective way to back up your USB devices

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.
