This work presents evaluated general purpose nuclear data files for the n+ 63,65Cu and n+ 90,91,92,94,96Zr reactions for neutron energies up to 200 MeV. The TALYS-1.8 code was used for the nuclear model simulations in the energy range from 1 keV to 200 MeV. To improve the pre-equilibrium particle emission the Geometry-Dependent Hybrid model (GDH) was used as option implemented in an extended version of the code as option. Resonance data based on recent measurements and their covariances were included in the files. A set of covariance data for all nuclear reactions was also prepared and included in the evaluations. The adjustments of the nuclear model parameters were performed to fit both available differential and integral measured data. The evaluated data were carefully checked against the latest fusion relevant integral measurements.
