Auslogics BitReplica 1.7.0.0

Auslogics BitReplica is capable and straightforward backup tool which makes it easy to protect your most important files from disaster.

The program has a list of predefined backup sources, for instance, so if you'd like to back up your Firefox profile, Internet Explorer favourites, Documents folder and so on then it's as easy as checking a box. (Although you can add other custom folders, too.)

BitReplica also offers a good selection of backup types: simple backup, exact backup (obsolete files are removed from the destination folder), and full, incremental or differential backups. A simple scheduler allows you to run the job manually, hourly, daily or weekly. And there are a few useful configuration options: you get some predefined "exclude" file filters; the program is able to back up alternate data streams; and you can have specific applications run before and after the backup job runs.

Your backup can then be saved locally, of course. But that's just the start. You can also store it on a local drive, upload it to Box.net or SkyDrive, even (at extra cost) use Auslogics own cloud storage service.

There are also a few down sides, though.

You're only able to choose particular folders to back up, for instance - it's not possible to select specific files within a folder.

There's no support for saving your backup to optical discs or an FTP server.

And there are no options to compress, encrypt or password-protect your archive.

Still, Auslogics BitReplica is fast and very easy to use, and if your needs are simple then it could make an excellent backup choice.

- made numerous improvements to all program modules
