FBackup
Use this free tool to keep your most important files backed up

Backing up your most important files seems to be far easier on a Mac. The supplied backup program enables you to choose certain applications to backup, choose a destination, schedule the backup and then this procedure is carried out routinely, without intervention.

On a PC, it seems far more cumbersome, probably because there are so many different Windows applications, it’s not just as easy as wanting to backup your Windows Mail and then leaving it to backup in the background.

FBackup is a simple free backup tool that attempts to make backup easy on the Windows platform. You simply select the type of files and applications you want to backup, your destination and then let it proceed. For example, you can quickly select ‘My Documents’, ‘My Pictures’ and ‘My Email’. If you then suffer from a system crash in the future, you simply select the same components and restore. Of course, you don’t have to wait for a system crash. If you move computers, restoring data to the new computer is an ideal way of moving files between the two machines.

You can create a compressed backup (ie. files within a ZIP), schedule a backup, choose to backup to multiple locations and much more.

The only thing you can do is backup to a remote server. This is a shame as many of us have spare online server space as part of our homepage or broadband account. It would have been good to backup online and then quickly select this content when we need to restore in the future.

Version 5.3 brings these changes:

- Added Catalan language for user interface
- The installer will check for updates and offer to install the latest version
- Added backup type on statistics page
- Folder name case is now updated in destination
- Added more information to logs and updated messages
- Service timeout when starting the computer due to antivirus scan delay
- Restore was not working correctly in certain situations
- "Try Again" after cancelling an installation didn't work

Verdict:

Keeps your essential files backed up, but only supports local backup destinations

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."
