Here is a short instruction describing how to backup AOL mail by creating a task to save some AOL email folder content to external hard drive.
Note: On Step 1, you can also select the advanced mode option. This option allows you doing extra steps and settings for making a backup task, including triggering a task by plugging a related USB external drive onto a PC.
* To use AOL email in Handy Backup program, you must generate AOL password by on-site security app. See the next division of this article for more detailed description.
To get an AOL password, please open the AOL homepage in a browser and run a password application (go to "Account Info" → "Account Security"→ "Generate app password").
Select "Other App", create name (example, Handy Backup App) and generate a password. After receiving a password, you can use it with Handy Backup, as described above.
