Bvckup 2 is a mirroring data backup software notable for its use of delta copying, speed of operation, small resource footprint and a "beautifully functional" user interface. The software replicates files from one location to another in their original format and purposefully does not include options for compressing or encrypting them. It does however include a comprehensive list of supporting features including periodic and real-time backup scheduling, removable device tracking and shadow copying support. Ideal for making local backups, backups going to external and removable drives as well as to NAS devices.
Bvckup 2 features:
- Real-time, scheduled and manual backups

Changes in Bvckup R74.11:
Added "Help/Feedback" option to the menu. Feedback is great. Can't never have too much of it.
Malformed exclusion/inclusion filters are now reported in the backup log
"Wake-up delay" is now observed for resuming, in addition to the reboots and de-hibernation.
"Missed a run" warning is now suppressed if it's because the app wasn't running.
Reworked messaging around the case of launching app more than once in rapid succession (i.e. if it was linked from both user's and system's Startup folders). The original warning was very cryptic and not exactly correct.
Added support for NFR ("not for resale" / demo) distributor licenses.
Fixed an issue with self-backup option. bvckup2.ini is now backed up if the backup copy doesn't exist.
Archive location (conf.arc_path) can be an absolute path. Previously it was always relative to the destination folder.
Fixed a smaller issue with the log rotation.
"Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\Cache*" is a new default exclusion filter
