Second Copy, by Centered Systems won the People's Choice Awards in the Best Overall Utility category and it's won multiple times. With this nifty utility you can do automatic backups to a variety of devices. Backup to a network drive, another hard drive, or a "Zip Disk". You can create profiles, or backup sets, that contain all the information for doing a backup. And doing backups are important, trust me. Don't wait to find out the hard way just how important they are. With this nifty program it's easy to create a "second copy" of your really important files.

Second Copy actually 'watches' the files you select and notices when there have been changes. When it does, it springs into action and updates everything in the backup location you've selected. The program has an intuitive user interface and that makes it easy-to-use. That also makes it perfect for users with all levels of experience. Give it a try for yourself. It's no wonder it got so many votes from users just like you.


WinZip, by Corel Corporation won the People's Choice Award in the Best Application category. Over the years WinZip has won both the People's Choice Awards and the Shareware Industry Awards multiple times. WinZipis the best-known program for working with ZIP and other compressed files. The interface is very intuitive and the program is easy-to-use. It's perfect for all levels of users - from beginners to advanced. If you need to work with ZIP files, this is the program you want to try.

WinZip has easy-to-use "wizards" that can guide you through the process of handling ZIP files or you can bypass the wizards if you like. WinZip is a powerhouse for working with ZIP files and yet it's always been easy-to-use. WinZip has been voted the best by you and by programmers as well. Check it out!
