Take care of your hard drive with Uniblue MaxiDisk 2013

Windows’ defrag tool is a fairly simple utility, and if you want anything slightly more advanced, you’re going to have to look elsewhere. There are a number of defragmenters that you could choose from, but if you view defragging as part of your overall system maintenance routine, it makes sense to take advantage of a tool that is part of a larger suite. Uniblue’s PowerSuite is an impressive collection of tools that have been designed to help you to improve and maintain the performance of your computer, and MaxiDisk is one of its components.

The application has three main sections, one of which - Gain Space - can be used to analyse your hard drive and determine how you can free up space. While disk space is not at the premium it used to be, having too much clutter on your drive contributes to it being inefficient. In addition to tracking down junk files, the scanner will also detect old backup files and enable you to compress large files to free up space.

Once you have maximized the amount of free space available on your drive you can turn to the Defrag section to help ensure that our files are optimally organized. This is a fairly simple set up and there are no options to configure – all you need to do is to set the analyser running and within a short space of time you will be provided with a report about the state of your drive. You can then decide whether or not to go through with the defragmentation.

One of the most important aspects of system maintenance is getting into a routine. Keeping on top of various tasks means that there is far less chance that your computer’s performance will deteriorate to an annoying level and MaxiDisk includes a scheduling option that can be used to automatically defrag your hard drive on a regular basis.

Note that the trial version only offers basic defragmentation support - no scheduling. Purchasing removes these limitations and MaxiDisk is part of Uniblue PowerSuite 2013.

Verdict:

As part of a larger maintenance suite, this is a valuable tool, but looked at individually it is slightly limited

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.
