USB Image Tool 1.70
Create and restore backup images of USB flash drives, MP3 players and more

The USB Image Tool makes it easy to create backup images of USB drives. These can include flash keys and similar portable devices (MP3 players, digital cameras and so on), and version 1.60 now adds support for non-removable devices (regular USB hard drives, memory card readers, more).

Operation is even simpler in version 1.60, as there's no longer any need to manually launch the program as an administrator; it'll prompt for the necessary rights. After that, once the interface appears you'll see any USB storage devices that might be connected; choose one, click Backup, specify the source destination and folder, and it'll be saved for you: easy.

Images can be saved in a Favorites list, for speedy access and restoration later.

A useful Device Mode displays useful information about your USB drives, including their file system, size, free space, and an Identifier that often tells you the drives manufacturer.

Version 1.60 adds a new "Reset" option which overwrites the drive's boot sector, causing Windows to reformat the drive with its original size. This may be useful if you've restored,. say, an 8GB image to a 16GB USB key, and now wish to restore your drive's original capacity. (But of course you'll also lose the current contents of the drive, so be careful.)

And all this comes in a very small (under 500KB), portable package, which is easy to use on most Windows PCs.

The USB Image Tool is small and simple, then, but has more than enough functionality to help keep your USB data safe: recommended.

Version 1.70 fixed "the bug, that caused the troubles with version 1.67 and Windows XP. Version 1.70 now requires .NET 4.0 again, but also supports Windows XP. I also fixed the option for scrolled output in the command line tool."

Verdict:

A simple but effective way to back up your USB devices

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."
