Second Copy Guestbook





Comments:
As a long term and very satisfied user of Second Copy, I make the following suggestions for minor improvements to what is an excellent product.
1. When doing initial backups involving a multitude of files, the log file takes far too long to refresh. There is no cancel option, once you've selected refresh. The only thing you can do is to force quit using Task Manager, then delete the log file directly in the System folder User/AppData/Local/Centered Systems/Second Copy/log.rtf. Then recommence the backup.
Is there something I'm missing?
2. Given that many users backup to removable discs, which invariably have a name different from the Drive letter allocated by Windows, the option "AlwaysShowVolumeNames=1" should be included as a default option. Finding out about this hidden feature is difficult and it would be much easier if it appeared in the default profile creation panels, so that users would be aware that that option exists if needed.
Regards
Richard Millington

Second Copy still does not check the destination drive available or not... scans the source files then tries to find destination... also SC can not run multithreaded... It is a must for SC... This software must scan the source and destination same time... if not lack of time... :!thinking:

We are in the business of IT support and at one of our smaller sites we have been using Second Copy v7 since January 2009. We do not use it at many sites, but it has certainly been a 'fire and forget' solution at this one.

We had a hard disk failure at this site a few days ago (January 2018!) and so we can say it has been running without any oversight on our part for over nine years. We are upgrading to v9 and it will be money well spent.

Hi, I have had this product for a while now and love it.

I just rebuilt my computer system and forgot to copy over the serial number.

How do I retrieve it please?

Regards

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
