Monitor the wellbeing of your hard drives with CrystalDiskInfo

We cannot overstate the importance of your hard drive to your computing life, seeing as all of your precious data, settings and other files are stored on it. Backing up is a vital part of everyday life, but it’s always better not to have to deal with file restoration or recovery, which is why it’s vital that you keep an eye on your hard drive’s health. That way, when your drive approaches the end of its physical life, you’re given enough prior warning to source a replacement and transfer your data across before it gives up the ghost.

CrystalDiskInfo is the perfect tool for the job – not only is it completely free, but it’s also capable of monitoring your external hard drives as well as your internal ones, which makes it pretty much unique among free disk-monitoring tools. It provides a health rating based on your drive’s SMART status, plus will list its temperature, enabling you to see just how hot your drives are running. Investing in drive-cooling technologies such as a laptop cooler or hard drive fan can significantly extend the length of your drives’ life, and CrystalDiskInfo will help you determine if it’s necessary and what effect such cooling has.

It’s simple to use, and can be left on in the background providing you with regular updates. This is the portable version of the program for those who don't want it cluttering up their hard drive.

Note this is the portable version of CrystalDiskInfo.

Verdict:

Essential monitoring tool that could literally save you hundreds of pounds in expensive data recovery fees by warning you of imminent drive failure.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 Version 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
