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.

"Excellent, reliable, quick backup"

July 17, 2011  |  By mmlewis7

 |  Version: Second Copy


Easy to set up backup profiles, times, etc.


None that I can think of.


I've use this software for backup for years, through several iterations. It has always worked well, and continues to be improved.

"Best personal backup software for Windows."

July 13, 2011  |  By ChaoticSun1

 |  Version: Second Copy


Set it and forget it. You have complete control over which files get backed up, and how often. With the new ability to copy in use files on Windows 7, it is even better.


I have been using Second Copy since 1999 and have found nothing to dislike.
