Second Copy Reviews

I've used SecondCopy for around 25 years. It's familiar. It's reliable. It's also stagnant.

I purchased several copies of SecondCopy 7 over ten years ago for my clients and decided it might be time to upgrade to the latest 64-bit version compiled for Windows 10. Do you know what has changed in ten years? Practically nothing. It looks and feels just the same. No progress in ten years? No new features, support for protocols other than FTP or addition of cloud services? Really?

I checked the website to see what the FAQ said. The latest entries were ten years old! "Known Issues" hadn't been updated, and still referenced SecondCopy 2000 and 7. I checked the options and didn't even see the addition of things that I've always had to edit in the config file by hand (NTFS time difference margin and changing log format from rtf to txt.)

No upgrade discount. No new features. No hint of any work done in ten years other than bug fixes. I think it's time to invest my time into another alternative.

It is a almost perfect paid software in its class but I have a couple of thing to additionally tell about it.
Firstly it is bad that last time program updated quite long time ago.
Secondly I hav eone serious complaint here, Second Copy can't archive empty directories... Yes, it is true.
