@Hugo
yes, there is =)
1) set up your profile normally
2) go to your profile settings
3) > "Other Options" (only available when using "Custom setup" on "Start" tab
4) > "Show advanced archive options"
5) select "ZIP" and on the same page at the bottom type in your desired "Volume size" in Kilobyte

Having a 5 KB file and typing in "1" will split the zip file in 1 KB parts. An additional bat file will be created too, to be able to restore the source file.
Very soon I will improve this input field a bit. I don't want users need to type in horrendous long numbers in kilobytes.

Thanks a lot for the info. That's exactly what I was looking for :D I just tried it out and it works like a charm. Really great and useful option...
Although I expected it to create the parts "on the fly". Instead the tool creates a normal zip file which is then split into parts at the end. Anyway, your method is also working fine!

Keep up the great work and I hope you get well soon...

Unfortunately the library I am using is not capable of creating parts on-the-fly. But it's the most performant library I can implement.
The next update will have some GUI changes so it's easier to choose the correct split size.

The two updates after that will be purely refactoring updates which will make it easier for me to implement new features.

Test build time!

I just uploaded a test build. You can download and test it if you want. Test builds can freeze, crash and do other sketchy stuff.
For everyone who wants to help me find bugs while using it "normally", you can download it visiting the page below (always use TEST files and no real data!)

This test build has already a big changelog, many improvements, some new stuff and many fixes.
I always try to eliminate all serious bugs.

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry for not writing anything before today. I was refactoring a lot of old code to have a nice clean base for new features.
One of the biggest features are completely refactored now.

I will provide a test build for that in the next few days. I would really appreceate to see people testing it and letting me know, if there are some bugs I am not aware of.
If you are interested to know more about the refactor you can read more here on reddit: jaBuT Backup Status Report September 2018

Site note: refactoring was absolutely needed otherwise I could not implement new features or other special changes users asked me in emails.
Another refactor which will come after I've released that update will come. This one will be GUI related.

Test build time!

After a few months of hard work which needed to be done I've released a new test build. I would appreceate ANY help to discover bugs.

What changed in that build?
- windows are getting created dynamically now and only when needed
So when a window is not opening or closing correctly, please let me know which one and what you did before.

- program settings are now being saved only when closing the program
Before that refactor I loaded program settings when needed into the program. Same behaviour when saving.
Now all program settings are being loaded all at once when starting the program and they are also being saved all at once when closing the program.
If an option you've set is not being recognised properly, please let me know which one.

Note: profile list columns sizes are not being loaded and saved at the moment. This will come later when the other refactor is being done.

Hello everyone!

I just released a new version of jaBuT Backup. It's 2018.11 Build 22981. Also there is a new website. It's a bit empty for the moment but blog posts and screenshots are coming soon.

The new update can be downloaded, as usual, from the website or through the updater. If the updater isn't working as expected please let me know. I made some fundamental changes but I always tried to provide backwards compatibility to older versions.

I am sorry for letting you wait so long time. But there was a lot of work to to. This is a 90% refactor build. Some features are new though.

Download : https://jabut.de/en/download/#download
Changelog: https://jabut.de/en/changelog/#v20181122981

If you find a bug do not hesitate to contact me :)
PS: the next few days I am not able to compile new builds and bug fixes.

Old post:
a new stable version will be released tomorrow. Everything has been set up successfully. Refactoring is done for the moment.
Also there is a new jaBuT Backup website which will be activated for the public along with the new stable update.
Updates through jaBuT Backup have been disabled until then.

Thanks for reading and a big thank you for waiting! I will edit this post tomorrow too.
