Locate files and folders in a flash with this ultra-speedy search tool

UltraSearch is an easy-to-use free search tool which can locate files and folders almost instantly.

The program achieves its high performance by directly accessing the NTFS Master File Table (MFT), which holds details on every file and folder on your PC. And so it's able to return results immediately, typically in around a second or two, without having to waste time or resources building an index: just enter a keyword and watch the results appear.

But the disadvantage, of course, is that the MFT only indexes file and folder names. So you can't search for JPEG metadata, emails or other file content - it's strictly names only.

In addition, the program only works on NTFS-based drives. You probably won't be able to use it to check the contents of, say, your USB flash drives, as they're likely to use a FAT-based file system.

UltraSearch is still useful for its extreme speed, though. And if you know you're going to spend a while searching only for particular file names, then its inability to show anything else is a plus, as it'll help you zoom in immediately to access the files and folders you need.

Version 2.0.3 "increased search performance".

Verdict:

While it's not a replacement for Windows Search, UltraSearch can be a useful addition, as the program makes it very quick and easy to search for files and folders by name.

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
