Backup to DVD Software

As you place backup to DVD, you protect important data from HDD failures, system malfunctioning and other “local” disasters. DVD backups enable you to quickly insert a disc and restore a needed version of your files.

To perform this in an easy and confident manner, it is recommended to use specialized software that can back up to DVD discs, such as Handy Backup.

Handy Backup Standard

To back up to DVD you need any edition starting with Handy Backup Standard. Note: For disk imaging and other advanced features, you need Professional edition or higher.

Recording Backup to DVD

To back up files to DVD, make sure your computer is equipped with a DVD-R drive. Our software supports all types of CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs and the respective burning devices.

When burning a large backup to several DVDs, be sure to number them, since you will have to insert them in order during the restoration. (This also applies to recording backup to CD disks and any other removable media.)

Temporarily Unsupported Features

The following features are temporarily unavailable in the latest version, Handy Backup 7.8.7:

  • Spanning data while recording backup to DVD. If data can’t fit a single disc, the program will automatically divide it into equal parts and record it to several DVDs, not disturbing the file consistency and prompting the user to insert the next DVD when the current disk is full.
  • Data verification. Handy Backup has an option to verify data backed up to DVD after burning.

We are planning to add these features in a couple of weeks, and if you need them right now, please use version 6.9.7 instead.
