The freeware makes use of Delta Copying feature, which actually scans the source folder for changes, and copies only the modified ones. Also,  for detecting the changes it uses a technique, where it takes snapshots of destination folder contents on every run, and compares the contents of source directory with contents of destination directory.

Conclusion:

Bvckup 2 (beta), is pretty good option to choose to create backup of files and folders. It’s functional, handy, and fast. Moreover, it pretty much does everything by itself, all you need to do is give the specification once, at the beginning. However, note that, this is just a Beta version. Still it’s pretty good and does it job well.

All in all very good tool for creating file and folder backup.
