O&O Defrag 18 (32-bit)
Ramp up your PC's performance with this very configurable defrag tool

O&O Defrag is a powerful and highly configurable hard drive defragmentation package.

At first the program looks much like any other defrag tool. Launch it, and you'll be presented with a list of your drives. Selecting one displays the usual mosaic-style map of its file layout. Then click Start and just watch as O&O Defrag reorganises its files to deliver the maximum possible performance.

This is just the start, though. Do you have multiple drives, for example? Select as many as you like and the program can defragment them all, simultaneously.

You don't have to use one particular defrag strategy, either. Instead you can have your files organised by their file name, access date, last modified date and more, whatever best suits your needs. Or if that's not enough then you can set up an entirely custom layout scheme which optimises Windows, application files and your user data to deliver the best possible system performance.

As you might guess, this probably isn't the best choice for the PC novice. But it's not overly complex, either. Once you've set O&O Defrag to work as you'd like, it'll run mostly in the background, defragmenting your hard drive automatically as required, while you get on with other things. And because it's so light on resources, and can be configured not to run at all if your system is busy or other heavy-duty programs are running, it's most unlikely to ever get in your way.

One interesting new feature this time is the option to securely wipe your drive's free space as the defrag works. This enhances your privacy by ensuring that snoopers won't be able to recover confidential files, but of course means you won't be able to undelete them, either, so needs to be used with care.

Business users will benefit from a new Optimize Thin Provisioning tool, which deallocates unused drive space on virtual and SAN volumes.

What's new in v18?

- New. Use over a Smartphone and Tablet 
- New. Time View to see which defragmentation activity results in which successful optimization
- Improved. Easy-to-Use: Ideal for Beginners and Professionals
- Improved. Even faster system and program starts
- Improved. Defragmentation time reduced by up to 40%
- Improved. Defragmentation of locked files
- Improved. TRIM for SSDs of any make

Verdict:

O&O Defrag 18 Professional Edition is a powerful and very configurable defrag tool, that will not only correct existing fragmentation problems, but also automatically optimise your hard drive in real time to prevent them from reoccurring in the future

Retail price for v17 is $29.95

Posted by: Marc P, 26 September 2013 12:32

The official retail price for O&O Defrag version 17 is actually $29.95 and not $19.99 as shown in this article currently. That may have been an older price for a previous version.

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
