Backup data in a Windows service mode

How It Works

When you switch Handy Backup into service mode, its icon disappears from system tray, without removing a respective process from Windows Task Manager. Starting an OS also launches this process and makes Handy Backup operation invisible and independent of users.

Run as Windows Service

The ability to launch Handy Backup as service is especially useful for a network-oriented edition, Handy Backup Server Network.

With it, a central computer (which is used to manage all tasks) has a server application installed, and networked computers have client applications which run as Windows service and grant the server access to their data. As a result, data from workstations is backed up invisibly, and people who work on them may never know about it.
