Paragon Partition Manager 10 for Virtual Machines
Back up, partition, defrag, repair and optimise your virtual disks

Paragon Partition Manager 10 for Virtual Machines is a powerful tool for managing virtual hard disks in all the major virtualisation packages (VirtualBox, Virtual PC and VMware).

The program includes a full set of partitioning tools, for instance: it can create, format, delete, move or resize a partition to suit your needs.

If heavy fragmentation is cutting your virtual machine's performance then Partition Manager's Defrag can help. And not by just reproducing the basic Windows defrag options. You get to choose details like where folders are placed on your drive, and how to sort files (by size, modification time, or not at all), giving you a much better chance of coming up with a defrag strategy that delivers significant results.

You also get a Boot Corrector tool that can fix many common startup problems, potentially very useful if your virtual machine won't boot. A host of other troubleshooting tools include options to update the master boot record, or check and fix boot.ini and BCD files. And if you know what you're doing then you can even view and edit your virtual hard disk at the sector level. (You need to be very knowledgeable about hard drive structures, though, as even a tiny mistake here could make your startup problems much, much worse.)

And elsewhere there are tools to back up your virtual hard disk, convert file systems, change cluster size, modify low-level details like primary slots or serial numbers, and much, much more.

Please note, while Partition Manager 10 for Virtual Machines is free of charge, you must register with Paragon to get a serial code. Go to this registration page http://www.paragon-software.com/registration/pmvm.html and follow the instructions. You will be emailed with a serial code.

Verdict:

Paragon Partition Manager 10 for Virtual Machines is packed with useful features, and is a must-have for anyone who regularly makes use of VirtualBox, Microsoft Virtual PC, or any of the VMware virtualisation packages

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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 2.17.81

- Want to easily record long Voice Messages? When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down.
