Backup and synchronise your data with PureSync

Keeping files synchronised in different locations has numerous uses, but it is particularly handy when it comes to backing up files. By synchronising folders, it is possible to define a source folder - such as My Documents - as well as a destination folder - such as My Documents Backup - and the two folders will be synchronised so they always contain the same files. This means that when files are created in My Documents, they can be automatically backed up for you, without the need to remember to do so manually.

This is precisely the task that PureSync has been designed to perform. The program can be used to perform basic synchronisation jobs like the one described, but it can also be customised to filter out certain types of files, to include or ignore sub-folders and create backup folders based on the date of synchronisation.

There are various types of synchronisation available. Synchronisation mode ensures that the contents of two selected folders are always identical, while Backup mode will only copy files from the source to the destination folder. In Mirror Mode, any folders that do not exist in the source folder will be deleted in the destination folder. A special Foto-Sync mode is also available for copying files from a digital camera to a folder of your choice.

Upgrading to the Professional Edition of the program provides access to a number of additional option. These include the ability to synchronise files to FTP servers, as well as saving space by utilising file compression. Private documents can be protected through the use of encryption, and it is also possible to synchronise files from a different user account by executing the program as another user.

Version 4.5.4 brings these changes (see changelog for more info):

New Features:

- Some little improvments

Fixed bugs:

- Fixed bug detecting moved fies
- Fixed some minor issues

Verdict:

A hugely flexible synchronisation tool that can be put to countless uses.

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."
