TCHunt 1.6
Find TrueCrypt volumes on a hard drive

TCHunt is a command line tool which can help you find TrueCrypt volumes - regular, sparse or encrypted hidden - on a hard drive. It won't help you to find the password or decrypt them, but just knowing that they exist will let you know that a user of that system may have something to hide. Or, if you use TrueCrypt yourself, it might be interesting to see how easy your own volumes are to detect.

TCHunt doesn't require any installation, you can just download and run it.

The simplest way to start is to point the program at the drive you need, like:

tchunt -d c:\

...and anything dubious will be highlighted as a "suspect_file".

This does produce a fairly detailed report, though, including information like files TCHunt couldn't access for whatever reason. Once you see what it's doing, use this command instead:

tchunt -d c:\ 2>nul

...and you'll only see the list of suspect files (if there are any).

Please note, the developer says that TCHunt can produce false positives. In our tests this didn't happen once, but it can't be ruled out, so take its results as a general indicator only. If the program highlights something you'll need to investigate this further yourself.
 

Verdict:

TCHunt proved a quick and very easy way to find all our test TrueCrypt volumes

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.2

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 2.16.1?
