Compare yourself!      Powercopy <-versus-> USB-solutions

Virus: Virus infected computers connectet via network card can destroy your secure and very important data on every PC inside the network in a view milliseconds, because it's filesystems or its filecontents are visible to a virus.
Powercopy builts an firewall  between these two computers.
Powercopy has an inbuilt selftest which checks itself on every startup. Most virus will be detected here.

Check: Powercopy can also built a signature list of your files on harddisk, which can be checked whenever you want. With this tool you have the chance to detect some virus before this virus is recognized by anti virus detection programs.

Usage: Powercopy under Windows 9x has an powerfull and easy to use file transfer dialog, which is implemented as an plug in to the explorer. By pressing only five mouseclicks you can transfer files between two computers.

File selection - deselection: You can also select/deselect them using wildcards * and ?. Selecting according to date and time and filesize is also possible.

Different transfer modes: In case of difficult environment you have the manual possibility to lower or change the transfer handshake protocol.

Automatic configuration: Powercopy has an inbuilt auto configuration program, so that you needn't know about your current DMA IRQ and PORT resources. Under Windows Powercopy uses the current values of  DMA IRQ and PORT resources. Under DOS Powercopy configures your PNP-Bios resources, even if they are not configured.

Long filename support: Powercopy supports long filenames if used inside Windows. Powercopy and can also store the long filename part even if the receiving computer runs under DOS 5.x 6.x or DOS 7. (Update).
