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.

    "when it is running, I cannot run other applications"

    April 7, 2006  |   By tatat123

    Version: Second Copy 7.0.0.160

    Pros

    I think the concept behind this application is a good one. I like all the features given.

    Cons

    When its running (on XP) it locks the PC up - and many times I've had to hit the power button just to get back control.

    "Easy and Reliable Backup"

    April 3, 2006  |   By kd6lor

    Version: Second Copy 7.0.0.160

    Pros

    I have used this software now through three major revisions. The first version was great and the next two were better. I use this to backup my business records on a daily basis and have found it easy to use and reliable.

    I backup to an alternate hard drive, a networked computer and a flash drive that leaves the office each night. Second copy does this all with great ease and I am confident of the moves.

    I have had the occasion to contact customer support - my error not the software - and found the support fast, accurate and friendly, not to mention done at no charge as a courtesy. This software is a steal at twice the price. Download it and give it a try!

    Doesn't make coffee. Other than that... None.

    "Finally, a backup utility that copies files!"

    March 28, 2006  |   By bdiscoe

    Version: Second Copy 7.0.0.160

    Pros

    There are so many backup tools out there (including the built-in Windows Backup Utility) which can only backup your files to an unwieldy monolithic archive. Second Copy synchronizes your active and backup filesystem exactly, so you have a full, exact copy! The interface is also clean, simple and powerful.

    Cons

    A few really minor issues: wildcards didn't behave exactly as i expected (although they are usable) and the Activity Log can take a rather long time to open.

    March 9, 2006  |   By shaan.poonow

    Version: Second Copy 7.0.0.160

    Pros

    Stable and functional. For complete images however, use Acronis TrueImage.

    Cons

    Nothing really.
