Backup as Windows service

Comments: 0

Handy Backup can be configured to run in the background and back up data as a Windows service. This feature allows users to schedule backup tasks only once, and always have them started in time even if nobody is logged on. When you switch the application into service mode, its icon disappears from system tray, but the respective process is not removed from Windows Task Manager. It is launched automatically on operating system startup and makes Handy Backup operation invisible and independent of users.

The ability to launch Handy Backup as service appears especially useful in enterprise edition of the program, Handy Backup Network Server. In it, a central computer (which is used to manage all tasks) has a server application installed on it, and networked computers have client applications which run as Windows service and grant the server access to their data. As a result, data from workstations is backed up invisibly, and people who work on them may never know about it. For more details, refer to Handy Backup Network Server.

  • Backups run with low priority and don’t interfere with other programs and applications
  • Smart email notification system and tray icon signals informing about backup progress

Remote Backup Service

Remote servers provide the most reliable and secure storage for data protected from fire, flood, theft, etc. They deliver even higher level of automation: when you back up data online, you don’t need to worry about changing media (e.g. when you backup to DVD disks), create proper conditions for tapes, etc. All you need to do is order storage from a hosting provider and configure proper backup plan and then you may forget about backups for months.

We are glad to offer you a Remote Backup Service of our own. By backing up files to our servers you receive not only a reliable storage, but also confidence that in case of any disaster you will be able to restore your data quickly and error free.
