Editors' review

Folder Copy & Backup provides people with a tool for copying large amounts of files with a program aimed at sidestepping any errors. Thanks to its simple controls and easy-to-use display, it achieves its goals nicely.

This program's interface is primitive enough that most users should feel instantly comfortable. A few large icons detail the commands and expandable file trees help navigate folders and their destinations. However, if you do begin scratching your head, the Help menu drops down and offers helpful how-to's and even defines terminology the program uses. We were impressed with the ease and simplicity of copying folders. With some intuitive file tree management, we had our folders copied and in their destination in a matter of seconds. One important note, though, was that we did not encounter any errors while copying; a major plus since sidestepping these problems is one of Folder Copy & Backup's biggest claims. Beyond simply copying and storing files, the program offers a small palette of added features that enhance the experience. The two biggest are its ability to filter only specific file types while copying, and the comparison the program runs between the folder being copied and the folder it is going to.

With a simple focus and intuitive design, we were very pleased with this 30-day trial's ability to copy our folders. We recommend this program to anyone with a lot of data to back up.

    "Good back up"

    February 02, 2014   |   By JosefS6

    Version: Folder Copy & Backup 9.8.15

    Pros

    easy install, easy first backup. Need to run again to see how new files are added. Then I can say good value - $30 is a bit high for a utility

    Cons

    annoying reminder to backup online - to their cloud server.
    I don't trust them, nor have I found a way to stop this popup reminder!

    Summary

    OK, if you can get past the popup and $30.
