■ Introduction

The. NET Framework ended with. NET 4.8 and has since become. NET Core (. NET 6).
Therefore,. NET 4.8 and. NET 6 are not compatible.
So we created "KsCopy 61yo" with. NET 6.0.
This is to "KmCopy V5" released in 2007.

This is a software program that copies items that do not exist or have different update dates from the "source folder" to the "destination folder".
A new feature is the ability to encrypt.

Some viruses have messages such as, "I've encrypted all the files, so if you want them back, pay me bitcoins."
It is called ransomware.
So, in my case, I set the "destination folder" to an external HDD and turn off the power except when copying.
Do not forget to turn off the power by using the "Panasonic dial timer" or others.

So if you're backing up and you're online, you're at risk.
this backups are called "Cold backups."

External hard drives are easy to carry around and need to be encrypted for theft.
Take advantage of encrypted copies.
The first time, all are encrypted and copied, so it takes a little time, but after the second time, only the difference is encrypted and copied, so it doesn't take much time.
AES encryption is used for encryption.
If you're using Windows 10 Pro, there's a whole hard drive encryption feature called "BitLocker" that you should use.

There are two types of "backups".

● System backup
Windows will not start unless the entire system environment is backed up.
To do this, you need to get a system image, and there are many such apps.
It is also included with Windows 10.

● Backing up data
This means that if data is damaged, it can be restored (or nearly restored) by duplicating and storing the data.
"KsCopy 61yo" is a software that makes this possible, and only copies the data.
There are three types of Data Backup.

● Device redundancy
Redundancy is provided in preparation for devices failure.
We introduce a mechanism called RAID, in which data is written to multiple devices (such as hard disks) at the same time.
RAID includes hardware RAID and software RAID, and Windows 10 Pro comes with software RAID, so it's useful.
Unfortunately, it is not available for Windows 10 Home.

● Remote storage
Store data in remote locations in case of disaster.
Various companies provide cloud services, so we use them.
Depending on the capacity, a monthly fee is required.

● Offline storage
This is the cold backup mentioned above.

In reality, the biggest damage is not caused by equipment failure or viruses, but by suspicious individuals themselves.

I received a request for a function.
I want you to copy it without your knowledge.'
So you can add arguments to the task scheduler so that you can set it
We also installed a button to create a shortcut with arguments on the desktop.

At the end of the day, I made a shutdown button because I was going to copy it and check for the usual error (the copy will fail if it is held by another process such as OneDrive).
I also had the option to empty the Windows Temp during shutdown.

"It's a pain in the" to enter the encryption password (key) every time and Want to use a 256 bit key then A function to output 256 bit keys to a file has been added.
Be very careful when storing.

Thank you very much.

Output the log file in ZIP file format.

■ Password entry screen

Passwords can be up to 32 bytes (256 bits).
By dropping the "Key File", you can select and enter the encryption key file created by the "Create Key File" button.
The first 256 bits can be used as a read encryption key for files other than those created by the "Create key file" button.
Caution: Files such as. jpg and. bmp cannot be used as encryption keys because the first 32 bytes are used as headers and they are the same.
Handle with care.

■ About updates
If there is an update, a confirmation dialog will be displayed at the finished.
Also, if it is executed without displaying the progress, a balloon notification will be sent.
Click on the balloon notification to you will be asked if you want to update at the end.

■ Note

● Regarding the accuracy of the update date and time of the disk format
NTFS update time in 100 nanoseconds
ExFAT update time in 10 milliseconds
FAT16 update time in 2 seconds
FAT32 update time in 2 seconds
But if you actually copy it
The update time is the same when copying between FAT and FAT32 and the update time is the same between FAT and exFAT too.
But when copying between NTFS and exFAT, the update date is different.
That's the result.
Allow errors for 2 second when the source format and the destination format are different then the source format is NTFS.

● Folders that cannot be set as copy sources
Windows Folders containing the above and subfolders above

● Folders that cannot be set as copy destinations
Folders containing the above and subfolders above.
