Tired of waiting for Explorer to grind through a lengthy file copy job? Then try this speedy alternative

FastCopy is an advanced file management tool that can copy and delete files faster than Windows Explorer alone.

The program includes a shell extension so you can use it from Explorer, although this isn't enabled by default, so you'll need to click Option > Shell Extension > Install to turn it on.

But once this is done, you can select files in Explorer, right-click one and choose the "Copy (FastCopy)" option to launch the FastCopy interface. Select your destination folder, click Execute and the program will handle the copy operation for you.

And if you want to customise the program then there are a host of settings available. So you're able to decide how much RAM FastCopy has available for its copy buffers, whether the program should securely wipe files it's deleting, how copy errors should be logged, and much more.

There are several complications here, unfortunately, especially for novice Windows users. Would you know what an "ACL" checkbox might do, for instance? How about an "AltStream" option? There are plenty of potentially confusing settings here, and don't expect the program documentation to be of much use: it's largely a machine translation from the original Japanese.

FastCopy isn't always the easiest program to use, then, but if you're a PC expert, or you're just happy to take the time to experiment and learn how things work, then you shouldn't let that put you off. The program really does deliver on its promise to cut your file copying time, and once you've mastered the basics you'll never go back to Explorer again.

Version 3.70 changes (see history for more):

- Fix error counter. (When a large file couldn't be written to dest, it was incorrectly counted twice)
- Enable to load fastcopy2.ini that contains BOM.

Verdict:

The interface is confusing, and the documentation a little dubious, but FastCopy really can save you time by copying files far more quickly than Windows alone

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.41

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 2.19.41 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
