Mods and Save Games Backup Script FO4
Version 1.3 Full Release
This backup script backs up mods and save games for Fallout 4.
It creates high compression, split volume archives that are defragmentation and upload friendly.
Backed up 7-zip archives (*.001, *.002 etc) are able to be opened by programs like Peazip (http://peazip.sourceforge.net) or 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org).
If your PC is 32-bit only this script will detect this and use the appropriate executable.
This backup script will take a long time to complete depending on compression level and how many large textures you have installed.
