Auslogics Duplicate File Finder
You can never be too careful with deleting file duplicates; Auslogic offers plenty of fail-safe options.

Just how many copies of the same file exist on your hard drive? While some people take great risks with their data, others end up creating backup after backup, or copying files here, there and everywhere, until multiple copies are left cluttering up their hard drive.

Duplicate file finders used to simply point out files with identical file names – it was then up to you to decide if the files really were the same and so one or more copies could be safely disposed of. But that runs its own risks, which is why today’s duplicate file-finding tools need to be really savvy when handling people's data.

Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is one such tool that bends over backwards to be careful while giving you the opportunity to locate redundant files to clear up much needed file space. Start by selecting your drives and whether Auslogics should scan all files or simply those file types (audio, video, images, archive and applications) you select.

It then performs a three-pass scan of your selected drives for the files you wish to root out: filename, last modified date, and finally MD5 checksum. The first two options can be disabled, which will enable Auslogics to discover identical files that don’t share the same name or modified dates, while the MD5 checksum – the equivalent of a file’s unique fingerprint – ensures the risk of finding non-duplicate files is incredibly slim.

Once the scan completes, you’ll be presented with a list of files. Tick those you wish to remove and opt to send them to the Recycle Bin (the default action), delete them permanently or archive them to the program’s Rescue Center, which gives you a fallback option should you later discover the file is needed after all, although you won’t free up as much drive space by doing so. It’s quick, simple and – if you choose the Rescue Center option – risk-free.

What's new in v5.0.0.0?

- fixed all known bugs;
- improved program stability and reliability
- improved internal libraries
- improved program installer.

Verdict:

Reasonably fast, thorough and with that all-important backup option, Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is well worth checking out if your hard drive is running out of space.

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
