I got bored and made this. Its a simple program that runs in the background while you're working on your hacks and will make backups for you. Now you wont have to worry about not having a backup when you mess up!

Current features:
Backup your ROM magically in the background
Handy notifications when it makes a backup
IPS, UPS, and BAK backup types
Manually make a backup if you so happen to want to

Planned Features:
Async backup creation
Patch checking in order to verify that things were backed up properally
Faster IPS creation

Screenshots:


Download:
Latest v1.1.1
https://github.com/Joexv/MagicBackup/releases/

Changelog:
Added Notifications when making an instant backup
Updated Libips
Minor Formatting changed to backup's date and time
Preparing program for making backups using an async thread which is something I probably should've done in the first place

Credits:
Alcaro for creating libips
VectorMan for having a copy to said libips on his github under TinyIPS(And for any changes he may have made to it)--Real MVP right here
Me I guess?

Note:
MagicBackup puts its config files and the like in
"C:\ProgramData\MagicBackup" just so you know.

If anyone knows how to make UPS patches let me know please ♥

    Well an Awesome tool in my opinion,

    It will save time for those hackers like me who often encounter an bug and somtimes even have to restart the hacking process due to lack of backups.
    It will probably save a lot of time. :)

    Nice job with it ;)
