How to Backup to CD

To backup data to CD, you will need only two things: Handy Backup and CD burning device. The utility supports all types of CD discs and provides full automation of all processes:

  • Integrated CD recording tool. Handy Backup features a built-in CD burning tool which allows you to burn backup to CD without any external software.
  • Automatic disc erasing. If you want to backup to CD-RW, you can turn on automatic erasing of the disc before writing.
  • Spanning data across multiple CD discs. If a disc cant store the whole data set, Handy Backup will split it and burn the backup to CD discs one by one.
  • Backup verification. To ensure backup integrity, the program can automatically check discs after recording, so you can always be sure that your data can be restored free of errors.
