BK Is Minimalist Backup Scheduling And Automation Tool

BK is a small backup and synchronization application which comes with multiple compression options. It offers a great deal of ease in backing up data with advance filtering features to include/exclude only selected files and folders. You can further schedule the job in question to let it automate the process.

The application comes with a simple interface and has a very straightforward usage. When starting for the first time, you need to add job(s) (sync or backup whatever required), specify the source and target path, choose compression option, and finally apply filters.

You can edit the job details and schedule the selected job whenever needed. The Schedule feature caters to different scenarios. You can run the job when it finds file changes, file modification, or any folder content changes. Besides scenarios, you can schedule the job on a specified date/time, and deploy the file monitoring mechanism to let it start the job on finding any file/folder changes.
