Being a Frequent Flier taught me coming to the airport ahead of time. More potential issue you encounter, more you learn to be careful and predictive. Working with HDD manufacturers taught me another lesson – never trust storage, and make multiple backups whenever you can. Listed as one of the Best Free Software of 2012 by respectable PCMag in its category, BVBackup indeed may help you to keep your most important information alive and well, no matter of the reliability of your computer components.
- Real-time, periodic or manual backups
Continuously monitor folders for changes and update their backup copies immediately after the originals are modified. Or run backups at fixed time intervals.
- Delta file copying
Reduce the amount of data being transferred by copying modified parts of the files only. This speeds up the backup, in many cases - dramatically.
- Precise file replication
Copy not only the file data, but also the attributes, timestamps, NTFS security and ownership information.
- Intelligent error handling
Rest assured that an issue with a specific file will not preclude the rest of the backup from completing. The program differentiates between file-specific and global errors and handles them differently.
- Small is beautiful
Minimize the run-time bloat. The program is small, light and closely integrated with an operating system.
- Powerful and intuitive file filtering
Specify an exact set of files to be backed up using simple and flexible folder and file filtering system.
- Streamlined and uncluttered user interface
The program is designed around the simplicity of a day to day use. Clear status indication, concise error reporting and a one-click access to detailed status information when you need it.
- NAS and HDD friendly
Eliminate unnecessary spin-ups of idle hard drives by not touching the destination when there are no local changes.
- Software updates
Keep your copy of the program updated to the latest version with automatic or manual software updates.
- Light on requirements
Run the program under regular user accounts as it installs no drivers or services, requires no reboots and, with an exception of shadow copying, needs no administrative privileges.
Price: The software is considered Beta, and is distributed for Free for now.
