Puran Defrag Free Edition
A highly configurable defrag tool

Puran Defrag is a simple disk defragger that will optimise your hard drive to deliver its best possible performance.

The program includes some useful configuration options. It can rearrange directories for faster access, for instance. You're able to exclude particular files from the defrag process, speeding it up. And Puran Defrag includes its own Intelligent Optimizer algorithm to place frequently-used files in the fastest part of your hard drive, which can deliver a significant speed boost.

Puran Defrag can be used in several different ways. You can defrag selected files by right-clicking from Explorer, for instance; reorganise your entire hard drive on demand; or run defrag at boot time, so it can work with system files like the MFT.

And there's an extensive scheduler that lets you set up exactly how you'd like the program to work. You're able to choose the drives you need to defrag, the features you want Puran to use, when it should launch (when the screensaver starts, when the PC is idle, at a particular time of day), and more.

Note that the program is free for personal and non-commercial use only. If you're using Puran Defrag in a business, you must purchase a licence.

Verdict:

An excellent defrag tool that's packed with useful features and configuration options

Puran Defrag 7.3

I've gone for the pro version but the free is really great piece of kit. This is all the defrag you'll ever need. Both Puran & Piriform free are great. Nothing between either piece of kit. Will all come down to which you like the look of best.

Puran Defrag 7.2 Free

I have software called Smashing Defrag, which over thirty-five dollars, I think, and I can't understand what it does. So I'm going to try this & see if it's any better. Smashing is not listed on this site, Download Crew, can you give it a try? http://www.defrag-defragmenter.com/ I'd be very interested in your opinion.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
