WinUtilities Undelete 3.1
Find and recover accidentally deleted files with the minimum of hassle

WinUtilities Undelete is a straightforward tool for recovering accidentally deleted files.

Run the program, choose the drive containing your deleted files, and WinUtilities Undelete will scan the volume for you. You'll then be able to browse directly to the folder in an Explorer-like interface to find your document, or you can browse all the deleted files in a new "All Deleted Files" folder. The program will highlight the condition of each file, so you can easily see your chances of a successful recovery, and these can then be undeleted with a right-click option.

As per usual with this kind of tool, the list of deleted files can be a lengthy one, making it more difficult to find what you need. So it's good to see there's a Search option available to help. Right-click in the right-hand pane, choose the Search option, and you can opt to search for files matching the text you provide.

The author's website also claims the program allows you to "preview images and binary files before recovery", however we couldn't see how to do this, and that's a minor annoyance. You can view the text names of deleted images, for instance, but no thumbnails, so you'll need to recover them before you can see precisely what they are.


WinUtilities Undelete is a capable enough undelete tool, although it would benefit from a better interface, and the ability to preview files before you try to undelete them

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.
