You may feel a need to backup My Documents or Documents to a completely different place than a local drive. Examples include:
You may continuously save copies of your Documents or My Documents folders for many reasons, including simple safekeeping data at another place than a local drive, providing shared access to these data from a cloud, creating an auto-updating FTP storage with crucial documents, and so on.
Note: Handy Backup preserves native document formats in backup copies, unless you specify encrypting and/or compressing for these data. Therefore, you can open, browse, modify or even restore any document from a backup copy without a need for complete recovery of Documents folder!
You can use all the possibilities provided by Handy backup to save a copy of your Documents folder to any other place than its typical position.
Handy Backup provides you techniques of full, incremental, differential and mixed (which means a cycle of a full and some differential) backups. Each of these techniques saves some space on a backup storage and/or some job time to restore your Documents folder again.
You can save copies of one dataset at the same place, marking them by versions and/or time stamps in backup folder names. You can also encrypt documents with a 128-bit BlowFish encrypting method, and compress the dataset into a ZIP archive.
Schedule your task to repeat by a period from minutes to months. Set up a start on logon/logoff or run a task automatically when you will plug a USB device related to a task into a PC. Call other programs or batch files before or after a task. There are many options to run your task smoothly!
