Whether you’re keen on backing up important files and folders, conducting group work, or simply bad at archiving files, a scheduled file copier can be a very handy tool to have around. Some files fall under the category of clutter and can occupy much-need disk space, slowing down your PC and forcing you to janitor files on a regular basis. Copying these files to a remote destination or archive location can save you the bother of thinking twice when hitting delete.
ScheduledCopy is one such piece of software that takes the manual work out of copying, backing up, sharing or archiving files on a regular basis. It’s a very simple program to use, simply requiring the source directory and a destination directory to be input along with the time the copy process should begin.
There are options to overwrite all existing files, useful if you’re backing up a directory and don’t want multiple files cluttering up your backups, as well as the option to rename all existing files in case you want to keep older versions. After the copy process has complete the option to quit ScheduledCopy or shut down the computer can be checked.
The software is free and open source and features a text log and notification sounds to let you know when it’s done.
- Copy from a source directory to a target directory at a time and date of your choosing.
- Choose whether or not to overwrite duplicate files or rename them to preserve older versions.
- Open source means the project can be forked.
