Bvckup is software for making backup copies of files and directories.

Just point it at a pair of locations and it will make sure that one stays an exact copy of another. In particular, it works really well for backing up data to external USB drives and NAS devices.

In other words, Bvckup is light, robust and simple to understand.
It is also incredibly fast.


Delta copying

Delta copying is a crown jewel of Bvckup. It detects and skips over unmodified parts of the files, cutting down processing time of larger files to a fraction.

Here it is in action, updating a 10 Gig virtual disk file of a freshly rebooted VM.

Device tracking

If a backup goes to- or from- a removable storage device, Bvckup will monitor for device removals and insertions and will run the backup only if the original device is present.

It will also automatically adjust backup locations should the original device appear under a different drive letter.

This basically means that once you configured a backup, you can tuck the app into the systray and then run backup by just plugging a USB drive as needed.

What it is and what it is not

Bvckup is not a two way sync. It doesn't compress, encrypt or FTP files. Nor does it come with a restore function.

It does just one thing - it replicates the contents of one directory into another - and it does this exceptionally well. Give it a try and see for yourself.
