Ramp up your PC's performance with this very configurable defrag tool

O&O Defrag is a powerful and highly configurable hard drive defragmentation tool.

This program doesn't just support a single defrag strategy, for instance. Instead you can have your files reorganised in a multitude of ways, sorted by file name, access date, last modified date and more, whatever best suits your needs.

And if even that's not enough then you can set up an entirely custom layout scheme which optimises Windows, application files and your user data to deliver the best possible system performance.

As you might guess, this probably isn't the best choice for the PC novice. But it's not overly complex, either. Once you've set O&O Defrag to work as you'd like, it'll run mostly in the background, defragmenting your hard drive automatically as required, while you get on with other things. And because it's so light on resources, and can be configured not to run at all if your system is busy or other heavy-duty programs are running, it's most unlikely to ever get in your way.

The major addition this time around is a "Time View", which O&O say helps you understand how particular defrag actions have led to specific performance optimisations. The idea being that this will give you feedback on how the program is working, and help you make better defrag choices in future.

But if that all sounds a little too theoretical, O&O have also delivered solid improvements everywhere else that matters, with the program launching more quickly, making better use of TRIM to optimise SSDs, and defragmenting regular drives up to 40% faster than before.

Verdict:

O&O Defrag 16 Professional Edition is a powerful and very configurable defrag tool, that will not only correct existing fragmentation problems, but also automatically optimise your hard drive in real time to prevent them from reoccurring in the future

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
