AllDup
Free up valuable hard drive space with this fast and flexible duplicate file locator

AllDup is a flexible tool that will quickly locate duplicate files on your system, and allow you to delete any that you don't need.

The program is supremely configurable. You can tell it which drives and folders you'd like it to examine, for instance (and it works happily with local and network systems). File and folder filters (inclusive or exclusive) make it easy to search for particular folders and file types only. And you can choose to compare files by any combination of name, extension, size, content, last modified date and more.

All these options don't seem to slow AllDup down, though, and the program generally delivered speedy results for us. Even when this isn't possible - you're scanning a huge external USB drive, say - it doesn't feel slow as the program delivers good feedback, with a progress meter revealing how much longer you'll have to wait, and how many duplicates have been found so far.

And once the process is complete, then you get a host of options to select particular files and delete any that you don't need. So many, in fact, that you need to be careful: delete something important and you could trash your PC. Pay attention and take the time to learn how the program works, though, and it'll help you analyse your hard drives and potentially free up a great deal of space.

What's new in 4.1.0? (see changelog for more)

- NEW: Comparison Criteria 'File Name' / Option 'Find similar file names': Now you can select the algorithms 'SmartMatch', 'FuzzyMatch', 'Levenshtein', 'Ratcliff', 'MatchDiff', 'WordMatch', 'FuzzyPercent' and 'Simil' to find similar file names. See examples at the help file.
- NEW: Search Options: Added the option 'Abort the search operation after a certain amount of duplicates was found'.
- UPD: Comparison Criteria 'File Name': The option 'Partial name matching' was renamed to 'Find similar file names'.
- FIX: Various optimizations have been introduced in various sections of AllDup. Various bugs have been fixed.

Verdict:

AllDup is a versatile and highly configurable duplicate file finder. As usual with this kind of program, though, you need to be extremely careful in interpreting its results: sometimes duplicate files are essential, and removing something important could seriously damage your PC.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.81

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 2.18.81

- You can now use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
- Group voice and video calls are now available. When you're in a call, tap the “Add Participant” icon. Group calls support up to 4 total participants.
