MiniTool Partition Recovery 5.0
Easily locate and restore a lost partition

MiniTool Partition Recovery is a free (for personal use) tool which can help you find and recover a lost partition.

The program works with regular hard drives, USB and other removable drives, and supports the FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT, NTFS and NTFS5 file systems.

It's wizard-based, and so very straightforward to use, at least under normal circumstances. On launch you'll be prompted to choose the drive with the missing partition; then you're able to specify the area to check (the entire disk, unallocated space, or whatever range of sectors you need); and after you've selected the Scan mode, you're done. The program scans your drive, reports on any missing partitions, and you can restore them in a couple of clicks.

Of course occasionally things might not be quite so straightforward, but MiniTool Partition Recovery has a few extra options which might help.

If it can't find your partition with the default settings, for instance, run it again using the Full Scan rather than the Quick Scan. It's more thorough (if also vastly slower) and may find your data.

Or if you've found more than one partition, just double-click each one to explore its contents, an excellent way to verify that the program really has recovered your files.

There is also a limitation here, in that you don't get a disaster recovery disc, so if your system drive partition is damaged then you'll have no way to recover it.

Otherwise, though, MiniTool Partition Recovery is effective, easy to use, and a straightforward way to restore lost partitions.

Verdict:

A capable and effective tool for restoring lost partitions

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
