Zero Assumption Recovery 9.1
Restore accidentally deleted files with this powerful recovery tool

Zero Assumption Recovery (ZAR) is the trial version of a commercial undelete tool - but don't let that put you off. While most of the competition place major restrictions on their trial builds, ZAR can recover up to 4 folders, and also includes a basic image recovery tool which works forever, no registration required.

Whatever mode you're using, the program supports a wide range of file systems: FAT16, FAT32, NTFS 1.2/ 3.0/ 3.1, ext2/3/4 and XFS. It supports NTFS compression, and ZAR can even try to reconstruct broken RAID 0, RAID1+0 and RAID 5 arrays, so there's a great deal of power here.

If you choose the full data recovery mode, then it's just a matter of selecting the drive with the missing files, and leaving ZAR to do its work. Which may take a while, because the program is exceptionally thorough, and inevitably that means it can also be slow. (Although you can tweak things by changing how the program handles bad sectors, and allocating more data to its read cache, for instance - check the full-sized screen grab to see how that works.)

Once the program has eventually finished, you're able to browse an Explorer-like tree of files and folders to try and locate your missing data. Or, alternatively, the built-in search tool will help you locate files by name, date or size, and you can then recover your missing data in a click or two.

Please note, the company also produce tools to create disk images, or recover email messages from corrupt mail databases (Outlook, Outlook Express and Thunderbird are supported). Find out more at the ZAR site.

Verdict:

It's not cheap, but Zero Assumption Recovery is a more powerful undelete tool that most. If other programs can't restore your lost files, give this one a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
