Wise Disk Cleaner
Free up valuable hard drive space

Wondering where all your hard drive space has gone? There's a good chance you can get at least some of it back. And Wise Disk Cleaner Free can help by scouring your system, looking for junk files that can be deleted.

Unlike most of the competition, the program doesn't simply wipe the contents of predefined folders (recycle bin, temporary files, browser cache and so on). Instead it searches your entire hard drive, looking for temporary or leftover file types.

The good news about this approach is that Wise Disk Cleaner Free is very thorough, and can uncover junk that other tools might miss. But the bad news is that it's slower, and there are risks involved, because identifying what can safely be deleted is very difficult. The program assumes that anything with a .CHK extension is a scandisk remnant that can wiped, for instance, but a .CHK file can also be a database checkpoint that really shouldn't be deleted.

Don't let this put you off Wise Disk Cleaner Free altogether, though. In just one click you can tell it not to detect .CHK files, and you'll be safe from accidental deletions. But even then, we'd recommend you check every file the program lists before you delete it, just to be sure you're not erasing anything important.

Version 8.4.2 (full changelog):
    - Fixed the issue that Microsoft Office can't record selection state.
    - Optimized Windows update cleaning.
    - Minor GUI improvements.

Verdict:

A thorough way to detect junk files, but beware - this isn't for beginners. The program may also recommend that you delete legitimate files, and you'll need the expertise to tell the difference

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."
