  Ready, Set, Go - unattended computer backups with Second Copy®
Centered Systems has announced the release of Second Copy 7, an automatic backup utility for Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP/2003 that makes backing up your important files a breeze. Second Copy 7 works in the background with little impact on your system's performance. Simply tell Second Copy which files you want to copy, where and when you want to copy them, and forget about it.

Second Copy 7's setup wizard helps users define different profiles each indicating different sets of files and rules. These profiles can be organized in groups by different categories such as daily backups, weekly archives, accounting files, etc. Setup wizard also assists the user in setting the frequency of the backups, including specific days of the week, hours of the day, or any desired time intervals. Files can be stored on any local fixed or removable disks, zip drives, CD-RW's, DVD's, as well as on storage devices on other computers across a network. Second Copy 7 backups can span across multiple disks.

Major new features include up to 256-bit AES encryption, FTP support, E-mail notification, as well as support to run as a service. Other features include PKZip compatible compression, file synchronization, and the archiving of up to 25 earlier versions of files. You can ignore files older than a certain date, and set zip file compression ratios. You can run any program before or after running each backup operation.

Second Copy 7 comes with an enhanced Zip viewer. For added security, the compressed files and customized settings can be protected using encrypted passwords. Second Copy 7's built-in auto-dial and auto-login features enable users to back up their files remotely to their servers in the office, or any other location.

Second Copy 7 can also run at Windows start up and shut down, creating second copies of important data files. The two-way synchronization option allows the user to maintain files in two places, ensuring that the latest version is always available at either location.

Advanced users can create macros that specify destination directory names, and allow for date/time stamping of each backup folder. Second Copy 7 also supports a command line interface for advanced users. Progress bars monitor backups while Second Copy maintains a log of all backup activity.
