Which Edition is Right for You?

Comments: 17

Our software is available in five editions:

Handy Backup Standard

The Standard edition is great if you need to back up files and folders, e-mails, Windows registry and other “regular” data. Supports any local and USB drives, CD/DVD, LAN, FTP, WebDAV and a variety of cloud services.

If you need to create disk images, store data to FTPS/SFTP servers, or Amazon S3, and create USB recovery drives, consider using the Professional edition.

If you need to back up multiple network computers with centralized management, then you need Handy Backup Network.

Handy Backup Professional

The Professional edition has all functions of the Home Standard edition and also supports “live” disk imaging, FTPS, SFTP and Amazon S3 as backup storage, and allows creating bootable USB drives with Disaster Recovery module.

If you need to back up Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, DB2, Lotus Notes and other databases, please see the Small Server edition.

If you need to back up files and disk images of multiple computers with centralized management, please see Handy Backup Network.

Handy Backup Network

Handy Backup Network is a client-server backup solution that lets you back up all workstations on the network. It works as follows: you install agent applications on all workstations, and then control backup, recovery and synchronization jobs from one control point. Supported data includes files, folders, Windows registry, HDD images and ODBC databases.

If you need to back up not only network workstations, but also data stored on network servers (such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and other), then you need the Server Network edition.

Handy Backup Small Server

The Small Server edition is an all-included backup and disaster recovery solution for Windows Servers. It allows backing up files, folders, HDD images, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, Oracle, DB2, Lotus Notes, and other server data.

If you need to back up multiple network servers from one control point, please see the Server Network edition which is a client-server backup solution for corporate networks.

    I have 1 Win 2003 Server Raid 10. Its main function is terminal services for 5 or 6 various laptops and PC's that login via VPN Clients. Is the network Server going to be able to backup the Server, local and the remote systems once their connected and then have their data saved to an off site location? Will the software be capable of bare metal recovery with diffferent hardware? Comparing Handy backup with Storage craft. Need solid soultion ASAP. Thanks

  • Rik Fox | 2013-04-11 11:45:04

    can the software restore to dissimilar hardware

  • FrankC77 | 2013-03-07 13:27:51

    Thank you, as it is a useful program although I do not have much data to backup. В FrankC

    I've converted from VISTA to W7, but when I reloaded and attempted to register HB 6.0 it said the registration failed. I tried to register via e-mail (as the subsequent pop-up recommended), but I haven't heard back from you yet.В  I still have the order number and receipt.В  I'm working off the trial version, but need to reactivate my copy.

  • HB_Support | 2013-03-11 02:47:58

    You have to reactivate you license key for Handy Backup if OS is changed. Try to send your registration data again please. E-mail : support@handybackup.net

    I love your software and have relied on it for a long time. В However, my old machine finally died and I migrated everything to a newer Dell laptop.В  What to I need to do to reactivate Handybackup 4.0 on the new machine? В My old license code doesn't work, and I've been without a backup for 3 weeks.

  • HB_Support | 2013-02-05 11:45:56

    At the moment actual release of Handy Backup is 7.3.2 you can download on this site. With more detailed information we did reply to your e-mail.

    Hi - we need to backup about 10 workstations plus the server that has SQL server with a few databases. I also need central control. With this, I assume I need Your $599 product which comes with 5 workstations. So I have three questions questions: Do I need a SQL plug-in? What is the price for 5 more workstations? Couldn't I use the Small Server product? Thank you for your time.

  • Moderator | 2012-12-04 17:31:44

    That one going to the sales department. Our business development director has said he is going to contact you personally, via email.В 

  • Arnold_77 | 2012-10-24 05:27:49

    May I shut off some backups/move them, f.e., I don`t need ICQ backup, ACDSee backup, etc., for having more place?

  • HB_Moderator | 2012-11-12 05:12:31

    Of course you can choose needed plugins.

  • Laura_S | 2012-10-22 08:23:17

    If I need to back up only the Lotus Notes/Domino database, would it be cheaper to buy just this plug-in in addition to the standard/professional edition?

  • SashaHB | 2012-11-13 05:26:08

    Actually, it would. Handy Backup Standard + Lotus Notes/Domino Backup plug-in = 138$. В For moreВ http://www.handybackup.net/order-plugins.shtml

  • T. S. | 2012-10-22 08:20:57

    Very helpful chart, but why it is so important to back up HDD Image? Does it mean that I don’t need to install an extra program to make disk image?

  • SashaHB | 2012-11-13 03:21:52

    The HDD image will help you restore your operating system. No, Handy Backup Professional already contains everything needed.

  • stinkyyy | 2012-10-22 05:09:02

    As I see Professional Edition covers many options, so I like it. May I take trial for the version?В  В 

  • HB_Moderator | 2012-11-12 05:14:12

    Yes, you can take trial for Handy Backup Home Professional.
