Arq
Securely backup your files online with Arq

Arq is an easy-to-use cloud backup tool which can save your chosen folders to Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive/ Nearline, Amazon S3/ Glacier.

The program is very straightforward. Once launched, just select your backup destination or destinations (you can use more than one service in the same job) and it automatically backs up your user profile folder. You can select any other folders to protect in a click or two.

Your backups will be visible from any other device which can access the same service, and Arq also has a Restore pane of its own, where you can select and recover whatever you need (including previous versions of modified files).

While this sounds and looks basic, edit your backup job or check the Arq preferences and you'll find some useful options. For example, a flexible scheduler can run backups every X hours, daily or on demand, as well as pausing backups between the hours you specify. There are also options to limit the total size of your backup, to throttle bandwidth use automatically (slow down uploads when other processes are using the network), and to send email alerts when backups finish or have errors.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use cloud backup tool with some powerful options and settings.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."
