ASCOMP BackUp Maker
A configurable, versatile backup program

ASCOMP BackUp Maker is an easy-to-use and highly configurable tool for backing up all your most important personal files.

Simple backups can be set up in seconds. Choose a few items you'd like to protect (Chrome, Internet or Firefox bookmarks, your Documents, Pictures or Music folders), click Next a few times, pick a destination drive and you're done.

ASCOMP BackUp Maker gets more interesting as you start to explore its options. The Scheduler can run backups daily, at regular intervals (every x minutes), on specific days of the week or month, when you connect a particular USB device, when a certain drive is mapped, when Windows starts, or you log off.

That's just the beginning. You can use a combination of these events, maybe automatically running backups once a day and when Windows starts. It's also possible to limit operations, perhaps running backups only within a certain timeframe, or if your computer is idle.

The program scores bonus points elsewhere, too. Many backup programs enable running a custom command before or after your backup, but BackUp Maker can run multiple actions, and has built-in commands to get you started. You're able to run a program, close or restart Outlook (handy if you need to back up a PST file), show a message, connect or disconnect a network drive, print or email a backup report, reboot or shut down Windows, and more. Set this up and it all works entirely automatically, with nothing else for you to do.

ASCOMP BackUp Maker has plenty of standard features, too: include and exclude filters, optional encryption and password protection, disk spanning, remote and optional local backups, and saving to CD/ DVD or remote FTP servers.

Create one backup job, and add more as required. They'll all run automatically if you've set up the scheduler, but you can also launch them from the program or optionally via a system-wide hotkey.

Please note, the program installs as a "Standard" version. To upgrade to the full version, tap the "Register Now" link to open the registration page, enter your name and email address and hit "Send".

What's new in 7.403 (see full history for more)?

Backup notification in system tray
Cancel actions before/after backup
New action: terminate process
Optional: Force process end
GUI optimized
Main window enlarged

Verdict:

Decent free backup tool but with a rather clunky old-school user-interface.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.31

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 2.19.31 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
