Active@ Disk Image
A quick and easy way to create image-based backups

Active@ Disk Image is a straightforward backup tool which will quickly create an image of your specified hard drive.

The program is extremely easy to use. Open it and you'll immediately see a set of shortcuts, with sensibly chosen names, highlighting all the main functions. So "Disk to Image" is plainly what you'll choose to run a backup; "Image to Disk" will restore an older backup; and options like "Copy Disk to Disk", "Create Boot Disk", "Schedule Task" and so on are all equally obvious.

This doesn't mean Active@ Disk Image is lacking in features, though. As well as creating a complete image of your hard drive, for instance, it can also create incremental images, saving only new or changed files. Your backups can be compressed, password-protected, or split into fixed-sized chunks for copying to disc. And a comprehensive scheduler allows you to run your backup jobs on startup, logon, daily, weekly, monthly and more.

The program does have one or two annoying omissions. If you've gone through the process of setting up all these options for one backup job, say, you might want to create another that's just a little different (maybe to create a backup of another drive). But there's no "clone" option, no means to copy an existing backup job to speed up the process of creating another, and so you're forced to start from the beginning.

Once everything is set up, though, that really isn't a problem, and overall Active@ Disk Image delivers where it matters: it's a fast, easy to use and configurable way to protect your data from disaster.

Please note, this version doesn't come with a bootable CD image, and so you'll be able to test the backup side of the program, and recover individual files from an image, but if your PC can no longer boot then you won't be able to restore a full backup. If this is a problem then a version with a bootable recovery disc image is also available, and you'll find it on the developer's site.

Version 7.0.4 brings:

  • Progress displayed on the TaskBar icon
  • Scheduled Running task Progress can be monitored
  • User interface & performance improvements
  • Active@ Boot Disk switched to WinPE 5.1 64-bit (x64) base which performs faster & optimizes RAM usage
  • Active@ Boot Disk now being able to boot the latest UEFI Secure Boot systems

Verdict:

An easy-to-use way to create image backups of your hard drive

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
