SafeCopy Free! is a small Windows application designed specifically for helping you copy files from one location to another while preserving or modifying file attributes and date/time stamps.
You can run the utility by opening the executable file, as there’s no setup included in the process. In addition, you can store it on USB flash drives or other portable devices and carry it with you all the time.
The tool manages to incorporate all configuration settings under a single panel without looking crowded and confusing. There’s support for an online help manual that presents only a few details about the program’s configuration settings.
SafeCopy Free! gives you the possibility to select the source directory that contains the target files you want to copy and choose an output destination. Folders can be added in the working environment using the built-in browse button or drag-and-drop support.
You can make the application keep the date and time stamps or modify the creation, modification, and last accessed date. What’s more, you are allowed to preserve or alter file attributes, more specifically read-only, hidden, archived, and system.
Tests have shown that SafeCopy Free! carries out a task quickly but this pretty much depends on the size of the files that you want to copy. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
All things considered, SafeCopy Free! delivers a straightforward approach for helping you perform file copying tasks. On the downside, it does not let you preview the changes before actually applying them and roll back the adjustments in case you are not happy with the final results.
