Complete backups faster

The app is very fast at bulk copying and it is even faster at updating.

Extensively optimized across the board Bvckup 2 goes out of its way to process every backup as quickly as possible.

Do just one simple thing...

The app does not compress, encrypt or FTP files. It's not a two-way sync nor is it a full system backup software.

It does just one thing - it mirrors A to B.

...and do it really well

It's better to excel at one thing than to be average in many.

From the nuanced user interface to the high-performance core, the app is built to always favor quality over quantity.

What's New:

  • Service account passwords now conform to Windows complexity requirements as per built-in security policy -- more specifically, the app now ensures that a randomly generated password for the bvckup2 service account contains an uppercase, a lowercase and one of digit characters.
  • https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh994562%28v=ws.11%29.aspx
  • DFS reparse points are now processed by default -- that is, reparse points of 0x8000000A type are now traversed during the scanning phase and generally handled as regular folders.
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributed_File_System_(Microsoft)
  • "No backups for 5 minutes after a reboot" option now supports Windows 10 reboots in Fast Start mode -- just what it says on the label, this option now properly works on W10 regardless of the reboot style.
  • I will put the details on https://bvckup2.com/wip in a bit, because new W10 reboot mechanism is... just something else. Killed almost a week on this one.
  • Fixed an UI issue in the "Scanning the archive" phase -- oddly enough the UI was missing a human description for this phase. No more.
  • Fixed multiple UI issues with higher DPI display modes -- this mainly covers the appearance of comboboxes and droplists in secondary UI windows like Email Alerts. They appeared shorter in height than they supposed to be.
  • Fixed an UI issue with the How To Send window layout -- minor OCD cleanup with 2px misalignment of some controls.
  • Fixed handling of external "status *" command.
  • Improved handling of swap file failure -- largely internal thing related to how the app handles edge failures in very large backups.
