Second Copy 9
Automatically back up your most important documents

Second Copy is a continuous backup tool that makes it extremely easy to keep your most important files safe from disaster.

At first the program looks like any other backup tool. So you'll specify the folder you want to back up, for instance, and the destination drive and folder where all your data should be saved.

But the difference comes in the backup scheduler. This can set your backup to run "every few minutes", for instance, so new or modified files will be copied almost immediately. Or, if you choose a backup frequency of "when file change", then Second Copy will monitor your source folders, and copy files almost as soon as they're created or edited. So even if a virus or accident wipes your system drive, say, you'll have lost the minimum of data.

And there are plenty of other useful bonus features, too. The program can compress your backups to save space, for instance; encryption keeps them safe from snoopers; and for maximum safety you have the ability to upload your data to an FTP server, so even if a big fire takes your PC with it, your data will still be safe and ready to be restored elsewhere.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use and effective backup tool

Sooooo Nice

I have an earlier version of this software (7.1.0.36). Imaging aside, it is everything I need from a backup program. My paranoia about losing files in monumental. With SecondCopy, I only have to set up a backup once and it runs automatically - puts the copy where I want it, just the way I want it.

I tried many others and found this to be the easiest to understand and use. It comes with a clear, concise help file that I don't have to go online to use. Support was responsive and helpful the one time I got off track.

I love this app.

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."
