Is it possible to export and import backup jobs...

Because i might have to format my pc and i have alot of backup jobs, i was just wandering is it possible to save all or selected backup jobs then just import them again

I will be adding this shortly.

For now you can do it manually. It's dead simple to do because Bvckup keeps all its configuration on a disk, in text files.

The primary config directory is %LocalAppData%\Bvckup2. From there backup the following files and folders -

%LocalAppData%\Bvckup2\engine\backup-00xx\settings.ini   --  for all "00xx"


In all recent versions of the program complete configuration may be saved in a single .zip file using Menu > Help > "Export configuration".

See for details.

How can I find the   %LocalAppData%\Bvckup2  ? I am a dummy...

1. Press Windows-E - this opens Windows Explorer
2. Press Alt-D - this gives focus to the path entry field at the top
3. Type %LocalAppData%\Bvckup2 there, press Enter

%LocalAppData% is a shorthand notation for


All that said, you can export your backup configuration via Menu > Help > "Export configuration" option. This will give you a ZIP file and included in it there'll be a short HowTo file describing how to restore the configuration.
