Free up disk space using TweakNow HD-Analyzer

Whatever size hard drive you have installed in your computer, it can be surprising just how quickly it can fill up. Whether out of curiosity or a genuine need to reclaim some space, it can be helpful take a look at your drive and determine which files and folders are taking up the most room – you might just find a few candidates for deletion. While this is likely to be an option that is going to appeal to someone with an older computer and a smaller hard drive, it is still a practice that has its place.

The program can be used to scan any drive you have connected to your computer, including external drives, but if you what to limit analysis to the contents of a particular folder, this is also an option that is available to you. Depending on the capacity and usage level of your drive, you are likely to find that the scan takes a while to complete, but if you have opted to scan just a folder, things wil be finished much faster.

The information that has been gathered by the app is presented in a number of ways. A list of folders that have been found is ordered with the largest at the top, while a simple bar graph gives you an idea of what percentage of your entire hard drive this represents. Expand any of the folders in the list and you will see similar bars representing each of the sub-folders – right click a folder to select the option to open it in Explorer if you would like to delete anything to save space.

The program also displays useful information about any of the drives that are connected, listing details such as capacity and the types of features that are supported and the settings that are in place. This may not be a tool you use on a daily or even weekly basis, but it is certainly a handy utility to have around as you never know when you may want to call upon its services.

TweakNow DiskAnalyzer v1.3.0
  •Added support for Windows 8.1.
  •Improved user interface.
  •Minor improvements and bug fixes.

Verdict:

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
