A good tool must be capable to make hard disk backup online, e.g. to some cloud such as S3 from Amazon or Google Drive. In other hand, the hard disk backup tool must also create local copies of a drive, for example, to make bootable drives or partitions from a USB external storage device.
Hard drive backup software have a need for internal scheduling, to realize some hard disk backup strategy automatically. In addition, such tool must also provide “silent” hard drive backup services, to work under a batch file or just as a process in Windows, making no distractions for a user.
A hard drive backup tool works with potentially sensitive data, such as Windows settings, passwords, database content or commercial project files. Therefore, a good utility for hard disk backup must have a function for encrypting hard drive images, as well as for secured connection.
Handy Backup meets all these requirements, and provides many other functions, tools and algorithms to make quick, safe and consistent hard disk backup! Try it just now by downloading a 30-day free trial version with all functions and plug-ins included!
Scheduling Hard Drive Backup
Start your tasks at a defined time, repeat by an interval from one minute to several months, or run a task when some event occurs, such as user logon to a system or plugging a USB drive related to a task into a PC.
Making Hard Disk Backup Secure
Use the built-in encryption tool to protect your hard disk backup from an unauthorized access, transfer your hard drive backup images to different secured cloud accounts or connect with an online storage by SFTP or FTPS protocols.
Run Backups Silently
