Free HDD LED
Get an instant activity LED for each of your hard drives

Free HDD LED is a simple tool that displays an activity LED for each of your hard drives.

The LEDs can be displayed in a tiny window that you can position anywhere you like on your desktop. Or if that's not convenient, a right-click option will minimise them to the system tray.

And you can also customise the LED refresh rate, hide the system tray icon entirely, or access other configuration options from the program's right-click menu.

It's all very straightforward and easy to use, but unfortunately the resource use is a little higher than we'd like, with the program grabbing 16MB of RAM (private working set) on our test PC.

Version 2.0.0:
    - new option: enable big LED! As requested by some users here is the big LED version :) enable this option to enlarge the window
    - removed Scroll-Lock blink feature. Some users have reported strange crash on Windows 8 while loading Free HDD LED (due to win32 library compatibility)
    - drive letter font for low disk space drive is set to bold
    - fixes

Verdict:

A simple, if mildly resource-hungry way to monitor hard drive activity

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
