Backup Software You'll Really Use

Falls Church, Virginia -- Centered Systems has released Second Copy 8, an application that protects the files and folders on your Windows computer by making it so simple to make backups, you'll actually do it. Unlike complicated backup software that requires you to understand your computer's internal file structure, Second Copy's wizard makes it easy to point to the files that you want to save, group them logically, and schedule each group for automatic backup.

Second Copy 8 works with all versions of Windows including Windows 7. As the name implies, Second Copy makes a "second copy" of your files. Second Copy does not copy files in any proprietary format. Therefore you can easily restore your files and folders onto any Windows PC, even if it doesn't have Second Copy installed. Widely used since its original release in 1989, Second Copy is stable, reliable, and fast.

New features in version 8 include the ability to copy open files (32-bit Windows only), support for Unicode, and the ability to copy files and folders with long names.

Second Copy 8 works with all of your drives, including local hard drives, network hard drives, external USB removable drives, thumb drives, flash drives, floppies, Jaz, and Zip drives, CD-R/RWs and DVD-R/RWs.

At work, Second Copy simplifies moving data from your local drive to the network drive. At home, you can transfer files and folders from your laptop to your desktop, or just use the software to regularly back up your valuable data files such as .documents, music, photos, and emails.

Business people and new computer users like Second Copy because the wizard makes it easy to copy, move, compress, and synchronize files and folders. The wizard walks you through every option, and explains your choices in simple English. The built-in scheduler lets you make regular backups without having to babysit the process each time. It can even copy files that are open and being used at the time the backup takes place.

Computer consultants, network administrators, and power users like Second Copy because it has all the features that they need to make copies exactly the way they want them. Second Copy includes support for Unicode characters, built-in FTP support, secure 256-bit AES encryption, and email notification. The program can ignore files that are newer or older than a particular date or a specified number of days. Second Copy can be set up to run as a service. In addition to running the program automatically, you can preview each backup profile before building the backup archive. You can even run Second Copy 8 from the Windows command line.

Whether you're an entrepreneur who needs to ensure that you have off-site backup of all of your important Windows files and folders, a network administrator who is responsible for backing up mission-critical data for the entire company, or a home computer user who needs to protect family photos and financial information, Second Copy 8 has the tools that you need.
