What are people saying about Copernic Desktop & Cloud Search

kydara Subscription-ware. Pass.

Sputnik Same as kydara.
Also, too expensive for what it is.
Numerous free solutions which do about the same.

Peter Gabriel Same as the above posters. Will not touch subscription-ware apart from some security software.

Jim Ranson Ouch sorry not going to bother. Far to expensive for 1 year. As other said there are other free or lower cost utils

Copernic I appreciate the candid feedback from our users, potential users, and non-user on our product, subscription-based pricing, and even our competitors. Feel free to check out the site for all our products.

Jim Ranson I would like to know how Copernic got my email address used on BitsDuJour. I went to over the Copernic website via a Google search. I tried to download the 30 day trial of Copernic using a unique email address on your order form. I then received 2 emails from Copernic at the email address I used on BitDuJour. One of these emails were to activate a customer portal account and one was a support request niether of which I requested.

Copernic @JimRanson. I am not sure if you went ahead and got the free trial on our site. If you did, you would have received the two elements you mentioned. Feel free to contact us at so we can look at the email in question and see where it came from. Again, as mentioned, those emails follow a purchase (even a free one) of our software.

Stephen Warkentien I always give priority to software with a perpetual license, bonus points for lifetime upgrades and support.

I view one-year licenses as extended trials. I rarely install them, even free licenses.

Dierk Have used Copernic Desktop Search for over 10 years, and, indeed, was Not Happy when they moved to a Subscription basis.

OTOH, I have yet to find an application that WORKS as well as Copernic does, let alone one that also Costs Less.

The "obvious" option would be X1 Search - which we used for a while some years ago - but they are running over $200 for 3 years of service ($80 for 1 year) and Dropped the ability to Index Thunderbird Emails (also "some years ago").

The 3-year License is not a terrible deal - I often "upgrade" apps annually, and almost always at least aim for an "every other release" scheme, so tend to judge subscriptions based on Expected Cost Over Time.

To be fair, I use the "Advanced" version, which is considerably less costly than the "Elite" version offered here.

FWIW: Our current 3-year sub is up for "renewal" at the end of 2024, and I am probably going to look at alternatives prior to that time. But based upon past searches, I frankly do NOT expect to find a program that works as well as Copernic DS for anywhere near their price point, and the final decision is likely to fall between Renewing CDS or choosing to try to live without it.

Chuck Can this be used to extend an existing license?

BrianS I agree with Dierk. How about a perpetual license for $47.99 with free version upgrades for 1 year??? After that, 50% off full price for upgrade versions. It's a great program but there are cheaper alternatives.

Copernic Good afternoon, Brian.

Thank you for your suggestion concerning alternative pricing options. We always like to hear from our current and future users. This is something I can bring up to the team in terms of an alternate pricing method. Not necessarily using your values. Do you know of other software that have successfully utilized this format of pricing?

Have a great day and thanks again

Copernic Hi Chuck,

I am sorry to have left your question unanswered.
At this time, this is for new purchases since the promo we are running with BitsDuJour is exclusive and goes through their cart and not our system.

We are planning on running some upgrade campaigns this year so look out for those.

Have a good one.

Dunking "Do you know of other software that have successfully utilized this format of pricing?"

Are you kidding? Until very recently that was the norm for much of the software. Two great ones to look at would be DOpus - - and Syncback of various flavours - - both of which I automatically renew just because. Another would be Macrium Reflect, which similarly gets renewed without a thought. Many, many more if you'd care to look.

On the other hand, I had Copernic license back when it was a perpetual. When it changed to subscription you lost me. Zero chance I'm going to even look to see if there's a trial or what new features there are.

A subscription to cloud services provided by Copernic would be OK (someone has to pay for the hosting after all), but if I'm using a desktop product I don't want to use any cloud service (indeed, if that's not optional it's another reason not to use this software).

Copernic Hi @Dunking.

Thank you for following up on BrianS' comment.
I took the time to look at the companies you listed which don't do exactly the same as us but I don't think that was the point, though. You were referring to their pricing structure.

Some of them have limited service and minor updates with yearly costs while others seem unclear as to the pricing. Our goal is not to compare our pricing but to learn from users their needs and thank you for the comparatives.

Our new(ish) pricing structure ensures that we can work on growing the product. Over the past few years, we have included cloud storage services in all our packages, have integrated with Sharepoint (which is my personal most uesed feature at work) and are working on the foundation to go on a online-based product.

As always, keep the feedback coming as it is invaluable.
