WinUtilities Undelete 3.1
Find and recover accidentally deleted files with the minimum of hassle

WinUtilities Undelete is a straightforward tool for recovering accidentally deleted files.

Run the program, choose the drive containing your deleted files, and WinUtilities Undelete will scan the volume for you. You'll then be able to browse directly to the folder in an Explorer-like interface to find your document, or you can browse all the deleted files in a new "All Deleted Files" folder. The program will highlight the condition of each file, so you can easily see your chances of a successful recovery, and these can then be undeleted with a right-click option.

As per usual with this kind of tool, the list of deleted files can be a lengthy one, making it more difficult to find what you need. So it's good to see there's a Search option available to help. Right-click in the right-hand pane, choose the Search option, and you can opt to search for files matching the text you provide.

The author's website also claims the program allows you to "preview images and binary files before recovery", however we couldn't see how to do this, and that's a minor annoyance. You can view the text names of deleted images, for instance, but no thumbnails, so you'll need to recover them before you can see precisely what they are.

Verdict:

WinUtilities Undelete is a capable enough undelete tool, although it would benefit from a better interface, and the ability to preview files before you try to undelete them

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
