Second Copy® 9

What Is Second Copy®?

Second Copy® is our award winning backup software. Designed for Windows 11 and backward compatible including Windows 7.  It offers easy and powerful ways of making backups of your important files and folders.

Second Copy® allows you to keep a backup of all your important files at a different location. Once you define the profiles indicating which files to copy, where to copy them, and when to copy them, Second Copy runs in the background. At the specified time, it compares the date and time stamp of the source and destination files, and it copies new and changed files. It also tracks the copying activities in a log file so that you can see which files were copied and if there were any errors.

Second Copy® arranges your backup needs in sets of "profiles." Each profile is a set of file and folder specifications which tells Second Copy®, what you want to be copied, to where, and when. Once configured, Second Copy® monitors the "source" folders for changes or updates and copies new or changed files to the "destination". This process is done unobtrusively in the background.

Second Copy® includes an easy to use profile wizard that guides you through the setup process. The setup process is separated into Express and Custom modes. In Express mode, you answer three simple questions (what, where and when) about the files to be backed up.

Advanced users can use the Custom setup option to define specific files to be included in or excluded from the copy. They can also choose how the files are to be copied, e.g. compression, synchronization etc.

The compression option also offers up to 256-bit AES Encryption. Files can be copied using FTP. Second Copy® can send an e-mail notification after running the backup.

Second Copy® is a full 32-bit multi-threaded program which lets you tailor the performance by controlling the priority of the background processes.
