Bvckup 2 is a backup/synchronization tool that uses "delta" copy methods, meaning it only transfers changes to a file or files rather than recopying the entire set. This is frequently faster, saves bandwidth for network backups and can help flash media live longer by reducing the overall number of disk writes. The program can do real-time, periodic or manual backups, and also functions as a file copier that can pause and resume both local and network transfers.

Note: this program is an unsupported beta, meaning that the author provides a commercial version of the program that includes support. A previous, freeware version with fewer features is available from bvckup.com.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware (unsupported beta)
How to extract:
  1. Download the setup program according to your OS and install with defaults
  2. Copy bvckup2.exe to a folder of your choice
  3. Uninstall program
  4. Create an empty text file in this folder with the following content:

    SET conf-dir="%~dp0Config"
    START "" bvckup2.exe -c %conf-dir%


  5. Rename the text file bvckup2-portable.bat
  6. Launch bvckup2-portable.bat
  7. Under Options - Preferences - Software updates, select "Don't check don't remind" as this program will always suggest downloading the latest version, which is not freeware.

Note: Over time that the contents of the "Config" can grow to substantial size. If it grows too large for your storage device, start a new profile and delete the old folder.
Similar/alternative apps: AutoVer, FolderSync

Actually it works great. I have tested it with Ditto. Only two programms
GoodSync2Go (paid) and Bvckup 2 (free) could make a backup without errors.

Highly recommended. Combines the simplicity of CreateSynchronicity, the delta power of rsync, and the continuous monitoring of Dsynchronise. The interface is easy to navigate, informative and elegant.

What makes it stand out for me is the archive of deleted items that it creates. I normally mirror my data to save on disk space, at the cost of not having backups. Now I can have the best of both worlds :)

Too bad though that this is an unsupported beta :(

Was great, now they started charging after a 2 week trial.

@ ADICorp
Charging after a 2 week trial? Beta is free forever. Double check that you're using version 68. The beta version link given on the website is supposed to be: https://www.bvckup2.com/get/beta

You might have accidentally click the big blue button. It's actually the URL link that say "Looking for the last beta?" right below the big blue button.

@billon - both 32-bit and 64-bit bvckup2.exe (beta) binaries are now available from our site. You can link to them directly if you'd like. You may also want to mention in instructions to get a proper version for one's machine, because while a 32-bit version will indeed run on x64 Windows, the shadow copying won't work. One will need a 64-bit version for that.

https://bvckup2.com/files/beta/bvckup2-0.68.0.0-64.exe (651K)

That said, keep in mind that these are still builds from 2014.

@Vacherin: Thanks: I'll check those out and update the instructions if Billon doesn't beat me to it.

Thanks for following up on this. I hope that giving away the old unsupported beta has helped gather attention for your program. It's definitely helped me.

I let bvckup2 do an update, version 1.0+beta updated, but it started with a temporary 1 hour license. Back to 0.68 from backup I have.
