PC World Handy Backup Free review

Handy Backup is plain, powerful, and easy to use

“Handy Backup is utilitarian in the best sense; it`s a backup program with a no-nonsense interface and a boatload of features.”

Supported Systems

The solution is perfect if your main purpose is to keep a local copy of important files and folders. It provides an easy way to select important documents and schedule automatic backup jobs that will keep them protected from loss or corruption.

Note: Current version of Handy Backup Free is based on version 5.8, which hasn’t changed since 2007. Very soon we will release an up-to-date version which will be compatible with paid editions and include all the latest technical achievements. Before that, we recommend that you use the Standard edition instead.

Difference Between Free and Standard Editions

Handy Backup Standard is much more powerful than free edition, as it provides the following features:

  • Full compatibility with Windows 7 and Windows Vista
  • More plug-ins for backing up Documents, Pictures, Music, Skype, and other data
  • More backup destinations: back up to FTP servers and optical discs, including CD, DVD and Blu-ray
  • More options: you can take advantage of backup compression, capability to run backup as Windows service, and much more

See product page of Handy Backup Standard.

    Hi Inbox Undelete! Thanks for the feedback. Actually, the arrival of the up-to-date Handy Backup Free is all about priorities and what users request. Right this moment we are working on disk imaging features (so users get handy functionality to back up their Windows 7 before migrating to Windows 8), improved controls for remote backup of multiple computers at a time, and new interface. If you think that a free version is more important than those ones, please let us know, and your voice shall be heard.
