A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named CopyAgent.exe. The setup package generally installs about 21 files and is usually about 185.68 MB (194,701,719 bytes). The software utilizes the Nokia Qt cross-platforms C++ framework. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 40% of users of Copy come from the United States, it is also popular in Israel and United Kingdom.
