Paragon Go Virtual 1.0 (32-bit)
Easily migrate any physical hard drive or partition to a virtual disk

Paragon Go Virtual is an easy-to-use, free tool that will quickly copy your hard drive to a virtual disk in any of the main formats: VMware Workstation/ Fusion, Microsoft VirtualPC or Oracle VirtualBox.

The program has many possible uses.

If you're upgrading your PC, for instance, you could save your old configuration - operating system, applications, data, everything - to a virtual disk, then continue using it in a virtual machine.

You're able to test potentially risky applications in your virtual environment with no danger of harming your regular PC.

Or, if you save the virtual disk to a USB hard drive, then you'll be able to take it with you on your travels, and access your programs and data from any convenient PC.

Whatever you want to do with the virtual copy of your PC, creating it won't take long. Just point the Go Virtual wizard at your source drive, choose the destination format, and it'll duplicate your system just as fast as your hardware will allow.

If you find Paragon Go Virtual useful then you might appreciate Paragon Virtualization Manager Professional, which can also create virtual disks but adds many more features. The program can connect to a virtual disk so you can browse and work with it, for instance; it's able to partition hard drives, transfer data between any type of virtual disk, and automate program tasks through scripting and scheduling. Normally $99.95, you may upgrade to Virtualization Manager for only $69.95; see the upgrade page for more.
 

Verdict:

There are similar free tools around, but Paragon Go Virtual wins out for its support of several virtual disk formats. This is a quick and easy way to convert any hard drive or partition to the virtual disk type of your choice

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
