Partition Wizard Free 11
Partition management just got easier with Partition Wizard.

Was it so long ago that partitioning your hard drive involved either losing all the data on it, or investing a hefty sum in specialist partition software? These days, you can resize partitions without data loss within Windows itself, so what’s the need for a specialist tool?

Take one look at MiniTool Partition Wizard and you’ll see your answer: first, it makes partitioning much simpler and friendlier than the Windows tool. Second, it’s much more flexible than Windows’ rather basic tool.

First, you’re not restricted by any fragmented or unmovable files on your drive when it comes to resizing an existing partition. You can also easily resize, move, extend and split partitions, allowing you to revamp your drive just about any way you please without having to rip it all up and start again.

You’ll find other handy tools too – copy partitions and entire disks to another drive (great when upgrading your drive due to a lack of space), plus switch partitions from primary to logical to bypass the partition table limits (you can also convert in the other direction too). You can even align a partition for better performance if it’s required.

You can also hide partitions, change their serial number and perform all the key tasks – assigning drive letters or deleting partitions – offered by Windows own Disk Management tool. There’s even a tool for wiping a partition securely, allowing you more thoroughly delete the data from it.

A lot of this functionality can be found in other free partition tools too, but Partition Wizard keeps adding new features to its free version to keep it ahead of the opposition – you can now convert back from NTFS to FAT, plus convert drives between GPT and MBR. It’s even possible to copy dynamic disk volumes too.

And before you come up for air, you’ll even find Partition Wizard is capable of recovering lost and accidentally deleted partitions too – perfect for cleaning up after another tool’s mistakes, or giving you a fall-back option should Partition Wizard itself fail to perform the tasks at hand.

All of this functionality is accessible from Windows, but you may find some operations won’t work until you reboot your machine. We’d also recommend you obtain the free bootable CD version (click the Bootable CD link in the program itself), which will give you access to all its functions (via the same user-friendly interface) even if Windows refuses to boot.

For most people, the free version has all the functionality you’ll ever need, but there are a number of paid-for editions too with additional features such as merging partitions or changing a drive’s cluster size without data loss.

What's new in version 11 (see upgrade history for more)?

- Add Data Recovery feature.
- Add Disk Benchmark feature.
- Add Space Analyzer feature.
- Bug fix for Disk Copy stuck at native mode.
- Bug fix for Partition Recovery fails on MBR disk larger than 2TB.
- Bug fix for external dynamic disk showing as bad disk.
- Bug fix for incorrect software prompt message.
- Bug fix for unable to create mirrored volume in Windows 10.
- Bug fix for drive letter not showing up after formatting a partition from Ext to NTFS.
- Bug fix for user setting not kept after software relaunch.
- Select existing partitions by default during partition recovery process.
- Register on Free/Demo Edition directly.

Verdict:

Utterly indispensable – Partition Wizard Free is the best free partitioning tool there is for Windows, period.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
