BackupCat:- Automatic, continuous backup (V 1.0.1.2 - 1.0.1.4)

Postby CJS » Wed Nov 09, 2016 4:01 pm

BackupCat, built on the wxWidgets 3.0.2 library, keeps your data files continuously and automatically backed up as you work. It keeps your files backed up to a second or remote drive, runs unobtrusively in the background without slowing down other applications, automatically updating backups as your files change, and includes the ability to locate common user folders when you set it up. It is launched by the Task Scheduler after you boot up or log on, so users don't even have to start it themselves. It has a free-for-personal-use licence.

It's intended to be useful for maintaining your backups without you having to manually update the backup, or for use installed for someone else (e.g. family member, friend, employee) who might not otherwise want to be bothered with making backups, so that it gets done automatically for them.

That looks quite useful, i'll check it out.

I think you should check the text on the website again. First it says "The software is free for personal and commercial use.". And later it says "for commercial purposes on one computer only for evaluation purposes".

Also, it looks like the executable doesn't have a manifest, so you get the old Windows 95 style look.
Use the source, Luke!

Thank you doublemax!

I have fixed the incorrect text on the website, and the manifest to update the visual styles (version: V 1.0.1.3).

The updated download zip file and online help files are available as before at:

I have released version 1.0.1.4. This version has been updated to make it available as a 32 bit build and a 64 bit build. There are also a couple of minor changes: an improved OS description in the About box, and enabling the installer/uninstaller to detect a running app so that a suitable warning can be given to close the app before uninstalling or upgrading (note - this will only work for running versions from 1.0.1.4 on).

Downloads and online help files are available as before at:
http://ccgi.cjseymour.plus.com/software.htm

There are separate zip file downloads so that you can either download the 32 bit build or the 64 bit build alone, or a combined zip file with both of them.

Feedback comments about my app can be sent on this page: http://ccgi.cjseymour.plus.com/contact.htm
(Forum members can of course comment right here in the wxWidgets Discussion Forum)

I've included a couple of features from the wxWidgets 3.1.0 library that aren't in the 3.0.2 version (Code::Blocks 16.0.1 explicitly supports only wxWidgets 2.6.x, 2.8.x and 3.0.x) - details are in the About box credits - clearly there are developments going on there that will be worth having.
