Bvckup 1.0.1.401

Bvckup Editor's Review

There are really a big number of free backup software out there which can make backups of folders and keep them synchronized. One program with this purpose that I've used for some time is Microsoft SyncToy. However, this free tool does not provide a user interface to schedule folder pairs to run at a designated times so I had to use Microsoft Task Scheduler. More to this, I encountered a problem using it and while searching for a solution, I had found another software that caught my attention - Bvckup.

This program is very simple to use and does exactly what I need - it creates exact copies of specified folder(s) and then keeps them continuously synchronized. After you choose what folders to synchronize, the program will keep monitoring this folder for changes and when detects any change, it will prompt to make backup of the modified files. The beauty in this is that the program will transfer only the modified parts of the files and this speeds up the backup in most cases very much - especially if your work with large files.

Additionally, the program will transfer the files attributes too, ownership information and NTFS security. This is quite something - you wont find it in many programs with this purpose.

To create a new backup, it's really simple: click File, New Backup, give the backup a name, set the source and destination folder and you're done. However, you can click 'More' for additional settings and options. Select what content to backup (this means files exclusion too), when to backup (backup interval, manually, etc), and a quite a few more advanced things. Additionally, the program supports Shadow Copying and can log the backup process in case of backup problem.

Pluses: The option to eliminate unnecessary spin-ups of idle hard-disks, customizable file backup lists, scheduled backup, real-time monitoring.

Drawbacks / flaws: Free during the beta release only.

In conclusion: A great program that makes exact copies of folders and keeps them synchronized in real-time - I like it very much: you should try it and see for yourselves.
