Migrate local groups to Active Directory, an NT 4.0 domain or a target server while copying.
Secure Copy is one of the only tools available that will migrate local groups while copying files and their permissions. (A local group is local to the machine it was created on.) If a local group has permissions on a file in your source server, Secure Copy will create the local group on the destination server, an Active Directory domain, or Windows NT 4.0 domain and modify the permissions list on the destination file to reflect the newly created local group. If you were to use the "scopy.exe" or "robocopy.exe" programs from the NT resource kit, every local group would appear as "Account Unknown" in the destination file"s permissions list. If the local group name already exists on the destination server, you can be prompted for a new name or select a prefix or suffix naming convention.
Multiple Copy Destinations
Copy files from one source server to multiple destinations - all in the same job. Replicate your data to multiple machines around the network with this new feature. Great for websites and project data.
Enhanced Job Scheduling
Once you have saved a job, you can then schedule that job to run at specified intervals. This feature now requires the Task Scheduler to be installed. It"s installed with Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater (IE5.0) You no longer have to be logged on in order for your scheduled jobs to run.
Include / Exclude
Include and exclude specified file types or entire folders from your copy job. You may wish to exclude "TMP" files, or only copy "DOC" or "XLS" files or exclude folders named "Temporary Internet Files".
Retain security while you copy
If you use Windows NT Explorer or the copy and xcopy commands to copy files, the file permissions are not copied with the file. However, with Secure Copy, you can move the files along with their permissions.
Create shares while copying
Migrate existing shares on the source server to the destination server. As Secure Copy copies each folder, it first checks to see if that folder is shared. If so, Secure Copy will create the share on the destination server and copy the permissions to the share. This outstanding feature alone makes Secure Copy worth the investment.
Full Command Line Support
Secure Copy is fully functional directly from the command line.
