Backup Magic editor lets you make a file that contains groups of folders that you want to back up. This file is called backup set and has file extension BMS. A group contains source and destination folder and file masks (file filters) that specify what files from that folder Backup Magic should copy. If you run backup, only new or changed files will be copied from source to destination, using the masks you specify. You don't need to make more than 1 group but you can do so if you have need. You can also set additional options like log file generation, auto-close, play sound when done, ask for right disk on start etc.
If you have finished building your backup set then you will save it into a disk file. And from this point, each time you want to backup/copy your stuff, you need only to open (double-click) this file (or its shortcut). For easiest access, you can make a shortcut to your Desktop, so you can run it just by double-clicking on the icon. You can also schedule your backup processes with Scheduled Tasks program or any other scheduling program. Backup Magic doesn't include it's own scheduler since Windows has a built-in one and that way you don't need to keep Backup Magic always running, thus saving valuable system resources.
