App Data/ local

I noticed that my engine folder for Bvckup at Appdata/local is using up a high amount of space  on my hard drive with the backups. Do I need to keep all of these backup folders?

The bulk of the space in AppData\Local\Bvckup2 is used to store block hashes for files that were copied using delta copying method.

Here’s a detailed description of what it is and how it works -

Long story short – if you don’t see yourself needing any of the delta copying benefits, you can disable it in Backup Settings > Copying section (change it to Copy in Full). You can get to Backup Settings by double-clicking on the backup entry in main window. After that you can also delete “/delta” folders in %LocalAppData%\Bvckup2\engine\backup-00xx directories to reclaim the space.
