“Files, folders, applications, My Documents, Desktop, Favorites, email messages, databases, Windows registry, disk partitions, the whole computer, and a computer network with dozens of workstations... It seems like this backup software just declines the idea of not backing up something important!”

The most popular types of backup (Desktop backup, My Videos backup, etc.) are available as preset backup tasks requiring a single button click to be accomplished.

With all the data types accessible in the backup software, every single one is treated with respect. Which means we carefully consider the nature of data it back up, for every tiny little setting and a hidden database cell to be thoroughly copied and stored available for timely recovery.

The miracle of respectful treating different data types is present thanks to the state-of-the-art plug-in system. Those plug-ins are exactly how the software understands how a data type is to be copied and stored.


Among presently available plug-ins there are:

  • MySQL
  • MS SQL
  • MS Exchange
  • Lotus Notes
  • Oracle
  • DB2
  • ODBC
  • 1C

Very soon we’ll introduce an SDK so you can create plug-in for what you personally like and use. If you think that some sort of plug-in will be useful for you or other users, you can always make one.

Thats what people call the shortest way for software development experience, glory (the world remembers the heroes contributing to popular software), and money.

Do you think your computers entire hard drive deserves having been backed up? Like with all the partitions, partition table, Windows registry, boot records, and the rest? Like to clone the system and restore it after a data loss disaster or migrate it to another machine in no time?

Our utility thinks it does. So, there is the special Image backup plug-in for that kind of stuff.

What about the operating system compatibility, you may ask. Well, if utility doesnt work for Linux, its not the problem of Linux. Thats how come Handy Backup does work for Linux Image backup.


Where are you planning to store the data your software digs for? To a local or external hard drive? FTP or SFTP server? CD, DVD, or Blu-ray? Basically, it doesnt matter, as Novosoft Backup supports them all (well, almost all of them; no tape as soon as its the 21st century now).

Not enough storage space on a single carrier? Use spanning and store data on multiple carriers (an insanely popular feature by fans of backup to DVD).

Looking for backup software to provide unlimited storage or top-notch data protection? These are exactly the options Handy Backups online backup cloud storage is happy to offer you.

And keep in mind the amiability of remote servers in an underground data centers operated by professional data engineers. And dont forget the highly attractive pricing. And mind the free backup software as a bonus for purchasing an online backup account.

Network Talents

How many users should operate network backup software for the data transfer process to flow smoothly? Everyone?

Or only the most passionate about backup (are there on the Earth the people passionate about backup)?

Or the ones who your company paid the software competence courses for?

With Handy Backups talents in network backup the answer is as simple as one. No kidding, just one person.

The client-server architecture grants all the power to maintain backup tasks, sync multiple network drives, and restore to the one who operates the network central server. And that might be just a single system administrator.

Besides the centralized control, as backup software to rock the network Handy Backup features handy installation for network computers (actually, with the Server Network edition there is no installation required for workstations).

Also for Windows service mode for workstation backup to be invisible to network machine users (and save their computers resources), and Active Directory setup.

Backup Software Comparison

It is a nightmare for the developers who make competitor products. At least in what concerns the edge of technological headway and the power of backup software functionality, Handy Backup wins the backup software comparison either on points, or on knockout.

For example, Handy Backup was among the first backup solutions to feature a fully functional MS Exchange 2010 backup.

There are backup programs out there that work with various editions of the Windows Server OS, provide acceptable functionality for MS SQL, MySQL, and other ODBC-compatible database backup, and manage file one- and two-way sync

But only few deliver the whole set of those options incorporated in a single product. Handy Backup is exactly the one. Also, there is hardly backup software that treats automatic detection of apps with all the settings which can be immediately backed up (if you find one, please tell us).

And yes, Handy Backup is very cost-effective and proud of it. Pay only for what you really need.

The Software Which Your Opinion Matters For

You would never believe if you knew what companies actually do with all those feedback messages and survey answers the luckiest receive in vast amounts. The range of actions include the most amazing options, starting from the unhappy nothing up to tricky hypnotizing of investors.

The option Handy Backup adamantly sticks to is actually reading. And analyzing. And implementing. The channels to deliver the feedback are everything you can of.

Like email, phone, Skype, Twitter (follow @Handy_Backup), Facebook product page (feel welcome to like), blog, and a bunch of others. And yes, you can also send a paper letter. It will definitely make the support services day.

Utility that Does the Job

Naturally, listing and describing the whole set of features by Handy Backup might result in a paunchy book like a couple of volumes of the Britannica or The Beatles songbook.

Backup scheduling, data encryption, backup compression, and many other awesome options are hiding behind the friendly interface.

However, the surest way to meet them and get exploited for your backup needs lies beyond the words of description, in actual using the program.

To summarize what you really need to know about Handy Backup is that it is:

  • Powerful
  • Cost-effective
  • Limitless in expansion (thank you, plug-ins)
  • Flexible in customization

So, dont miss your chance to experience probably the smartest backup software out there.

    will the small server version stop database services prior to backup and then restart them after the backup or do i need network version. В I am only backing one sever.

  • HB_Support | 2013-03-06 07:55:45

    It depends on Database you are using. MS SQL won't be stopped and hot backup will be done, MY SQL will be stopped and restarted(hot MY SQL backup coming next month).
