CD Copy

CD copy is a duplicate of data of a CD discs that is stored in a different place. If CD copies are made for the purpose of saving data from loss or corruption, this is called backing up.

When speaking about CD copying, it is important to understand the legality of this procedure. Since music is subject to copyright laws, making backup copies of audio CDs may be illegal. However, this is not a strict rule for data CDs, since data files, e.g. software, usually have different schemes of protection.

In many cases, duplication of data CDs can be replaced with direct backing up to CD, performed by a backup program, such as Handy Backup.
