Backup, restore and clone entire disks and computers.

Clonezilla, based on DRBL, Partition Image, ntfsclone, partclone, and udpcast, allows you to do bare metal backup and recovery. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore. While Clonezilla SE is for massive deployment, it can clone many (40 plus!) computers simultaneously. Clonezilla saves and restores only used blocks in the hard disk. This increases the clone efficiency.

Clonezilla has two main uses: backup, taking a copy of your computer's hard drive to restore in case of a failure, and cloning where a copy of one computer's disk is applied to another computer (or another disk if you are increasing the storage capacity of the same computer. The SE (Server Edition) version is designed for cloning many copies of one system, making it suitable for commercial and laboratory environments where many computers need to be set up with the same software and settings. It is extremely fast at this, having been used to clone a 5.6GB image to 41 computers simultaneously, in ten minutes!

Clonezilla is based on a number of open source projects, such as Partition Image (an open source equivalent to Norton Ghost. It supports many filesystem types, making it suitable for cloning Windows, Linux and Intel-based MacOS systems. As backing up complete filesystems is safest when they are not in use, Clonezilla is supplied as a live CD image and can also be booted from a USB stick or a network boot server, depending on your circumstances.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
