Bootable drive for system backup and restore
Handy Backup / Features / Bootable Backup Software
Bootable backup requires a more sophisticated approach than you can find in most tools. It implies that the utility not only creates copies of selected data, but also creates a recovery drive that can be used to boot up the PC if primary system fails. To do that, you need a specialized backup software, such as Handy Backup.

Our software is equipped with a Disaster Recovery module which lets you create a bootable backup drive and use it to restore your PC after a crash. It has multiple first-aid functions and is fully compatible with backups made in Windows.
Unlike many other bootable backup software, the program lets you back up system drive without stopping Windows. Complete computer backup can be performed without reboots and doesn’t interfere with your work at all.
Backing up your HDD and restoring it to a different device is an easy way to clone hard drive. This can be done both when you run the program in Windows program and when you boot the PC from a bootable recovery drive.

To back up bootable disks and make use of the recovery drive, you need the Home Professional edition, or higher.
It is highly recommended to create a bootable recovery drive, because if your primary system crashes, you will not be able to launch the system to restore your backups. Besides that, is sometimes useful to work with your main HDD as with a “cold” device (with no operating system running on it), as it is faster and less subject to errors.

Our software allows you to easily create a bootable disk backup, as it was an ordinary “cold” external media. It features a Disaster Recovery module designed for creating backup images and disaster recovery disks. In case of a system crash, you can use a recovery drive to boot from it and restore a backup either to the original, or to a different place. This means that even if you can’t boot your main system, you will be able to launch your PC and restore your data in working state. The program can restore images on the original disk, or to a different hard drive, resulting in a HDD clone. All backup operations can be done from Windows, except restoring system partition and other locked partitions, which require you to boot from a recovery flash or USB drive (which contains a Linux-based operating system).
