Second Copy Guestbook

This one of the most valuable applications I own. I have been relying on Second Copy forever. Thanks for the refinements over the years. And thanks for not being tempted to add a never ending list of new, confusing and worthless features. I do hope you have been justly rewarded for your efforts.

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Suda,
Been using SC now for at least 10+ years with NO problems! Thank you.
Have a new, 64bit Win10 pro box now. Just purchased SC 8.
Problem: In past versions, I was able to simply select a sub-directory with a checkmark and it would know to back up Everything in that directory. Now, it seems it's Only backing up the files - not folders also. If I go thru all the trouble of manually selecting every single folder/file in that sub-dir it works.
Any ideas?
Thanx, Tim

I know I can't be the only one that has asked for this, but any chance for a mac edition? I'm running a windows VM for the sole purpose of using second copy to synch files between a primary and secondary NAS....

Admin reply: Thank you for using and supporting Second Copy. We do not have Second Copy for Mac at this time, however we have this on our wish list. Unfortunately we cannot estimate when Second Copy will be available for Mac.

Glad that this project is still on.

I'm laughing when reading (Professional!) reviews that "SC is not a true backup", or "it doesn't do images, emails and bookmarks". People forgot how to use their brains.

Windows does image backup just fine and you don't need this every day.

Bookmarks? Find where it's stored in Program Files and create a profile in SC.

Emails? Didn't try, but I "suspect" that email client like Outlook also has these files stored on hard drive, so you can create a profile. Besides, most servers will keep emails for 30 days or longer.

Hi Suda,

I have been using wonderful Second Copy, daily, since (at least) 2001, and I absolutely swear by it. Many thanks.

I have a WD MyCloud home server, which is a nice piece of kit (the hardware), and SC is ideal for backing up to it. However, the remote access and synchronization software that WD supply is very poor. You, if anyone, could help them to improve their product. Check it out!

All best wishes,
James

Many technicians can backup programs and files and restore them to newer operating systems on computers for customers. There is also the option to do fresh installation of operating systems and installing more then a few disk drives for hard disk storage. These are formatted for the application of storing files to the disks. They can also be removed and installed in other machines as well as used on DVDROM and removable storage devices. :!cool: :!cool:

Suda,

I have been using Second Copy for a long time (since Win95, I think) and love it! I depend on it to keep my files backed up between monthly “cloning.” I wouldn’t change anything about it.

Today I was going to ask that you add the ability to ignore specific folders, but Oops! You already thought of that (“Tips and Tricks”).

Blessings on you, Suda!

Best regards,
Suda

I purchased second copy 8 some time ago and loaded it onto my computer (windows 10). Whenever I try to copy with second copy the program is not available with the icon. It always says the program has been changed or moved. The help, quick install, etc are still there but the program is not. This has happened for at least 10 times and each time I have to reload the whole program. Any ideas what the problem is?

Admin reply: For future reference: Please email your questions to "support@secondcopy.com" instead of posting them on our guestbook.

Second Copy 8 works with Windows 10.

When Second Copy is installed and started successfully, you will see the Second Copy icon in system tray. Left mouse click on this icon to open the main Second Copy window. (If you do not see the Second Copy icon in the system tray next to the clock then make sure that it is not hidden by Windows.)

Thank you!

I don't see any way on your web site to to ask for technical support, so here goes. I had SC7 for many years and upgraded to SC8, and still have the same problem. When I click on the log icon to view the log, SC hangs forever, and the only thing I can do is go into the Task Manager and kill the process and restart SC.

Could someone contact me please and help out.

Admin reply: For future reference: Please email your questions to "support@secondcopy.com". On our website on the top, you will also see "Support" page where our email address is listed.

Just in case, if the log file is corrupt please exit Second Copy. Then delete log.rtf file from "\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Centered Systems\Second Copy" folder. (where, <Username> is the currently logged in username.) In Vista and Win-7/8/10, log.rtf file is stored under "\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Centered Systems\Second Copy" folder. (where <Username> is the currently logged in username.)

Then start Second Copy from the Start menu, and run the profiles again. Then view the log.
