Note: XML-based plug-ins are temporarily unavailable in the latest version, Handy Backup 8.5.2 (released on January 16, 2024). We are planning to add this feature in several weeks - and if you need it right now, we recommend that you use version 6.9.7 instead.
On this page you can download free XML plug-ins for our software.
Free plug-ins allow backing up data and specifics of many popular applications (see the list below). To learn about advanced plug-ins that make up different editions of the program (such as Image Backup plug-in, Database Backup plug-ins, and other), please see Plug-in System.
You have a chance to contribute to development of our software. If you are currently using an application which is not on the list of available plug-ins, you can make a plug-in YOURSELF!
Plug-in creation can be fun, and besides, you will help many users worldwide facilitate their backup with the help of YOUR plug-in!
Your assistance will be greatly appreciated and awarded with a free copy of Standard edition with your plug-in included! Also, you will get some publicity on our website as the author of a particular plug-in, please do state otherwise if you want to keep it confidential.
