SVN Backup Tool
SVN Backup Tool is a software utility whose purpose is to aid individuals create backups for their local or remove SVN repositories, with just a few clicks.
Surprise-free setup and clean interface
The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer to download any products that are not actually necessary for the tool to work properly and it is over in a few seconds. After you complete it, you come face to face with a minimal and clear-cut GUI, as it only comprises a menu bar, a few buttons, some boxes, a pane which displays added repositories and another one which allows you to view logs.
Inputting repositories, tweaking and backing them up
This program enables you to add repositories with great ease, by simply inputting details about it, such as name, path, authentication credentials (if any) and whether or not you want to also create a ZIP backup file. It is also possible to input a password, edit repositories at any moment and delete, verify and load them.
Last but not least, you can choose where to save backups, view the date at which you last performed this operation and view logs or copy them to the Clipboard for further use.
Conclusion and performance
The backup process might last quite a while, yet it is important to understand that it also depends on the number of items your repository contains. The CPU and memory usage is surprisingly low during these tasks and therefore, the computer’s performance is not going to be hampered. The interface is suitable to all user categories and we did not detect any kind of errors or crashes in our tests.
Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say SVN Backup Tool is a useful piece of software for those interested in creating backups for their SVN repositories.
