"The easiest and the least expensive"

 ZDNet UK (TechRepublic)


"When your business is small, the easiest (and least expensive) way to back up your data may be to use a program such as Second Copy to run in the background and make a copy of your data files to another location, such as another server on the network."

- Deb Shinder

"Second Copy, a simple-looking application that is full of hidden depths... Had one of the big companies come out with this gem, you would be paying £50 or more. Centered charge just £20.50 [US$29.95] online."
