To ensure your backup consistency, the backup strategy should include testing of your ability to restore the files. However, you dont always have an opportunity to check all the data, since this task is time consuming and requires a lot of free space. Backup verification is a simple way of feeling surer that your backups are working correctly. It provides confidence that all data is readable and was backed up without any errors
Since most computer users can afford buying a CD/DVD burner, backup to CD and backup to DVD have become very common procedures. Optical disks provide a cheap and relatively fast way to store data, and many people consider them as the most convenient storage media. On the other hand, CD/DVD disks are more subject to physical damage than hard drives, and data can be written incorrectly. Backup verification provides a comprehensive check that your backup has been burned error free.
You can try to verify backup manually by restoring several files and making sure that they match the original. However, this method of data verification doesnt guarantee that the entire backup has been written correctly there always remains a chance that a place on the disk containing the most needed file will be unreadable.
Handy Backup supports backup verification after burning to CD/DVD, Blu-Ray or HD DVD disks. To enable this feature, check the respective box in File -> Settings -> General Settings. Once your backup has been verified, you may be confident that it will be restored perfectly.
For a detailed guide on enabling backup verification, please refer to General Settings in the User Manual.
