Auslogics BitReplica is a free tool for backing up files stored on your Windows PC. It protects your photos, music, documents and any other data from being lost due to a hard drive crash, virus attack or accidental deletion. The program should be especially useful for anyone who has several storage drives.
BitReplica also offers a good selection of backup types: simple copy, two-way synchronization, and full, incremental or differential backup. 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; it is able to back up alternate data streams; and you can have specific applications run before and after the backup job runs.
You’re only able to choose particular folders to back up, for instance – it’s not possible to select specific files within a folder. Your backup destinations are limited to regular local or external drives: there’s no optical disc, FTP or cloud support. And there are no options to encrypt or password-protect your archive (not even as a part of the ZIP compression option).
