Keep your valuable data safe with this versatile backup tool

MAGIX PC Backup MX is a powerful tool which will help to back up your most important files online, to local or external drives, CDs or DVDs.

The program is designed to be very easy to use. Launch it, for instance, and you don't have to go wading through menus or dialog boxes to discover the scheduler: it's right there, in the Automatic Backup option. Choose the files, partitions or drives you'd like to protect, select a backup destination and frequency, optionally add password protection, and you're done: MAGIX PC Backup MX will now automatically back up your files at the specified times.

It's just as easy to back up your data online to the MAGIX WebDisk. You get 2GB of space for free, but can pay to add more at any time.

If you really want to keep your files save, then it could be worth enabling the program's Live Backup feature. Point MAGIX PC Backup MX at your most important folders - Documents, say - and it'll monitor them closely, automatically backing up files just as soon as they are changed.

Should the worst happen, restoring your data is very straightforward. A "Restore" tab within MAGIX PC Backup MX makes it easy to choose the files, folders or drives you'd like to be recovered. Or, if your drive has been so corrupted that it won't even start, you can fire it up from the program's Rescue Disk. (As long as you've created it, anyway - go to the Additional Features tab to do that first.)

And there's even more, with MAGIX PC Backup MX sensibly including an Undelete tool which might avoid the need to restore a backup altogether. And the bundled Data Shredder will securely overwrite confidential documents, so you can be sure that their contents are gone forever.


MAGIX PC Backup MX isn't for PC experts; it doesn't have the depth of settings and configuration tweaks that you'll get from some high-end backup tools. Everyone else, though, will find the program easy to use, with support for all the backup types you need, and plenty of useful bonus features.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
