New release of SafeCopy backup

December 17, '14 by Troy Hickerson

New version of SafeCopy Backup software is being pushed out through our auto-update feature.  Over the next couple weeks your computer will prompt you to update, but if you want to skip the line and upgrade immediately, you can download and upgrade at www.safecopybackup.com/pages/download.   

  • New restore process built into to the software.  This is helpful when restoring large amounts of data because the software will manage the download back to your computer.  The web browser download is simple and convenient for remote access to your files.
  • Improved support for network folder backup.  If you have a shared folder on your network we have improved the process and stability for backing those remote folders.
  • Improved security and minor bug fixes.

If you haven't visited your SafeCopy account on the web, you will notice many improvements as well.  We continue to improve the web based access including advanced searching, automatically hiding files that have been deleted from your computer, and built in photo gallery.

Enjoy the holidays and as always, let us know if you have any questions by emailing support@safecopybackup.com.

Updated photo viewer

February 24, '12 by Kevin Woods

 photo slideshow viewer

The SafeCopy web file manager has been update to include an integrated photo viewer.  There is now a small camera icon on the right hand side of each folder.  If you click on the icon, it will create a photo album  view based on the images inside that folder.  You can click-to-zoom, play an slideshow or view full screen.

One of the best features of the updated album viewer is that it only takes one click.  With many slideshows or albums, you first have to select the images and create the album.  However with SafeCopy your folders are organized online just as they are on your computer.  So if you navigate to photos of your recent trip to the Bahamas, you can revisit your trip with a single click.

SafeCopy Supporting Invisible Children with Proceeds from 1,000 Backups 

SafeCopy found a way to give back this holiday season. On December 10th, SafeCopy will be giving away 1,000 licenses for only $10 (normally $50). The best part is that 100% of the proceeds go towards Invisible Children Protection Plan.

Go to the SafeCopy homepage on December 10th to purchase our 1 year 200GB plan for $10.

Problem in Central Africa

The LRA, a brutal rebel group responsible for Africa’s longest-running armed conflict, has murdered and mutilated 
innocent civilians for more than two decades, across four countries. The key to the LRA’s continued survival has been 
the kidnapping of children who are conscripted into their ranks, a number that has reached over 30,000 according 
to UN reports.

How Invisible Children is helping

Invisible Children created a local early-warning radio network called the LRA Crisis Tracker.  This makes attack information publicly available through a digital map, a breaking newsfeed, and a mobile application resulting in improved efforts to combat LRA atrocities and help communities in need.

Our small part

We here at SafeCopy are humbled and impressed with how Invisible Children has used technology to help in their mission to provide freedom for children and entire communities in Africa.  We are proud to donate 100% of the proceeds to help fund their Protection Plan to build more radio towers and rehabilitation centers for former LRA child solders.


Terms and Conditions

1,000 licenses of 200GB for only $10. First come, first served.

Starts at 12:00AM on December 10th and ends at 11:59PM on December 10th Eastern Time (-5:00GMT).

You can be a brand new to SafeCopy or upgrade an existing free 3GB SafeCopy account.

Only one purchase per email account, however as many per person as you like.

No refunds. 100% goes to Invisible Children.
