Software News   Software News : New version of BackUp by OnyxSoft
   posted by Deniil715 on 22-Oct-2014 15:54:23 (1458 reads)
OnyxSoft releases BackUp v1.90 with fixes and new features!

BackUp v1.90 - (68k) Backup program that mirrors a directory structure.

- Added a verify byte-by-byte funciton in the Misc menu. Useful to test if a backup is truly perfect, or if it has bit errors. Useful if you suspect a broken disk/flash or IDE transfer errors by too high UDMA speed.
- Added "Copy only newer" files as an option.
- Better and more accurate speed calculation that tries to only calculate the actual copy time.
- Fixed some link recognition. It always found unresolvable links as different and recreated them, even if they were equal.
- Fixed not logging files in test mode.
- Human readable timestamps in the log and fixed printing of protection bits.
- Doesn't print data speed in cleaning mode. It is pointless.
- Doesn't clear the stats window when running more than one process in a row, like backup after cleaning.

If you see a bug or have a suggestion, please don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail!

If I may ask, has this program been tested under latest MorphOS?

Is there any incompatibility? Cause I don't want to found any after a crucial back up :P

@Cool_amigaN

I have personally not tested it on MOS, but it is a plain OS2/68k program so I doubt there would be any specific incomatibilities with MOS that would not also occur on OS4.

Especially if you don't have any files larger than 4GB there should be nothing to worry about.

You could just try making a backup and then check it manually before deleting the original. And you can also check it with the new Verify byte-by-byte function. If Verify detects a problem (that you cannot trivially explain) after backup it could mean BackUp has not detected certain changes and not backed up some file, but I really doubt this would happen, especially if you use an Amiga file system and not Samba or USB with FAT.

I tried it other day on MorphOS and seems to work fine (just like earlier versions too). It's been my backup solution on MorphOS for some years.

BTW. I tried that verify byte-by-byte function and it said that there's one difference, but I couldn't see anywhere which file it would be. Should I see it or was I just in too hurry to notice it? :)

You need to check the log to see what the difference is. You can activate 3 different places to log in the Log menu.

I usually log to a file. I have that option and "Backup.log" saved as default prefs. But you can also get the log in the stats window (can get huge and slow) or to the console (might not be able to see and scroll through all). I think file is the best. Fast and always covers all.
