As USB drive backup software, Handy Backup lets you completely automate all backup-related procedures. Important files can be automatically filtered, compressed, encrypted, and copied to a backup USB drive, scheduled or triggered to run by plugging a USB to a computer.
You can back up important data to any USB devices, including pen drives, hard disks and cellular phones or to every other USB storage that is recognizable by your computer. Learn more about supported backup storage.
If you are using Handy Backup Professional edition or higher, then you can use your USB drive to create a disaster recovery disk. Disaster recovery disk helps you restore your computer if it fails. Learn more about disaster recovery.
You can set up your USB drive backup software task task to start every time the particular USB device linked to your task will plugged on to your PC. No matter which USB port you use. The program will recognize the device previously assigned to a task.
These are some troubles, which can compromise your flash drive backup. Some of these troubles are innate, while other are those you can avoid by using Handy Backup features.
USB drives, especially SSDs, can be costly when compared with local and network HDD storage (including private FTP servers). It is an unavoidable flaw.
You can easily lose a flash pen or a mobile HDD, and it is a relatively easy target for a thief. By using backup encryption, you can secure your data, if not your USB.
Regular USB backup can speed up the process of degradation of solid-state USB drives, which is also the unavoidable, physical flaw of USB pens.
You can avoid physical flaws by duplicating or combining USB backup with other backup storage, such as clouds and local drives. Handy Backup allows automating this procedure and realizing any complex, scheduled backup strategy to maximize your data security.
"I use backup to USB with Handy Backup software for several years. Its function of auto start the backup procedure saves a lot of time for me, as I always have a guaranteed, fresh copy of my projects and books on my USB pen. I am also very fond with the function of USB data sync, which allows me taking copies of my presentations on an auxiliary storage device!"
