Use DriveLetterView to more easily manage drive letter assignment in Windows.

Many computers now have two or more hard drives installed, and in addition to this, removable drive, media card readers and CD/DVD drives can means that when you open up Explorer there are a large number of drive letters listed. DriveLetterView is a free tool that enables you to take control of these devices and better manage drive letter that have been assigned to them.

In the case of memory card readers, it is common to find that even empty media slots are listed in Explorer and have been assigned a drive letter. When the time comes to copy files to a drive, it can be difficult to determine which is the one that you should be using. Using DriveLetterView you can opt to hide drives that are not being used and easily change drive letters to suite your needs.

Run in standard mode, the program can used to simply view a list of all of the drive letters that Windows has assigned to different drives. But opt to run the program as an administrator – just right click the program and select the Run As Administrator option – you can set about the task of changing drive letters and hide unwanted drives.

The program interface makes it easy to make the necessary adjustments, but power users can take advantage of command line parameters to create batch files to automate certain tasks. In reality, DriveLetterView does little that cannot already be achieved in Windows, but it makes the entire process so much easier. The option to create an HTML list of your drives also proves useful.

Version 1.40:
    - Added new columns: 'Bus Type', 'Product String', 'Product Revision', 'Vendor String', 'Serial Number'. Be aware that these fields are only displayed for drives that provide this information.


A simple free tool that is a great supplement to Windows’ own drive management tools, and much easier to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
