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

April 07, 2006  |  By tatat123

 |  Version: Second Copy


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


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 03, 2006  |  By kd6lor

 |  Version: Second Copy


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!

"Finally, a backup utility that copies files!"

March 28, 2006  |  By bdiscoe

 |  Version: Second Copy


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.


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.

"Excellent product. Second Copy + Acronis TrueImage = Worry free backups"

March 09, 2006  |  By shaan.poonow

 |  Version: Second Copy


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


Nothing really.
