Second Copy

CNET Editors' review

The program provides standard functionality for backing up and synchronizing your data. Like many similar applications, Second Copy is based on profiles that store information about what files to back up, where and when to do so, and so on.

The program can back up 25 versions of the same file, handy for those users who routinely make a lot of changes. All you have to do to create a new profile is modify a similar one. You can group numerous profiles and run backups automatically in the background. For more advanced users, the program offers FTP support, command-line options, and macros.

Its otherwise handy and clear interface would gain from integrating dialog and option windows in the common shell, but what it really lacks is a tree view for profiles. However, Second Copy's functionality and price are adequate for both small-business and home users, especially those comfortable with technology.

    "Great Program"

    January 31, 2014  |  

    Version: Second Copy 8.1.2

    Pros

    I have used it for over 10 years. Great for what it does.

    Cons

    None that I have.

    Summary

    Lost SC8 profiles when computer crashed. Lost all profiles. Setup new profiles. Profile "A" copies files to Drop box. Profile "B" copies files to Network drive. Shuts down computer. How simple is that. I start the Program and walk away. Always does what it is supposed to do. Love It. I also have Acronis, I use it to make an image and sends it to the Network Drive. Both are Great.

    "Simple, Reliable, easy to use"

    April 3, 2013  |   By dougfield

    Version: Second Copy 8.1.2

    Pros

    -Simple, yet very functional interface
    -Reliable
    -Set it and forget it

    Cons

    -none that I know of

    Summary

    I have been using Second Copy for over 10 years and never had any problems with it other than log entries showing excess characters once in a great while. That problem was fixed by clearing the log & starting fresh. It has been very reliable for backing up my documents, saving older versions in a separate folder in case I need to revisit that version. Other profiles back up Quicken and TurboTax files along with many other important documents. Backups to cloud drives & external drives insure data preservation in case of fire, theft of PC, or just needing some information while on the road with some other laptop, etc.
