Bvckup 2 Reviews

Simple and brilliant

about Bvckup 2 · · Helpful Not helpful

I absolutely adore it. It's super simple, easy to udnerstand, yet powerful. It's got properly designed clean interface and it's really lightweight. Developers - this is how you design the user experience right.
It recognizes moved or renamed files pretty well, removing the need of recopying same files multiple times when rearranging them on a source hard drive. I only managed to not track the file properly, when I moved the file out of the folder and then removed the folder itself - this resulted in removing the file and adding it again to the backup fodler. You can find that functionality on few other apps aswell, like. f.e. FreeFileSync, but they tend to leave additional setting files in synchronised folders - this one doesn't. Another free alternative to Bvckup 2 would be Microsoft SyncToy, but it just (for now) feels rough and limited.

I highly recommend it - for a 20$ this is a fine piece of software.

First, there's an unsupported Beta (free!): https://bvckup2.com/get/beta

Second, this program is one of few simple and easy-to-use "delta" backup tools, meaning it only sends data that's changed. So if you edit one sentence in a 10,000 page document, it'll only send that one sentence. This is hugely important in an age of SSD and thumb drives, which have a life limited only by how many total writes can be made to the drive. With Bvckup, you have dramatically fewer writes when backing up your changes.

Great interface, super simple to use, and lots of settings and tweaks.
