Windows libraries are storage for most important user files, from work projects to personal photos to game data and favorite music albums. Handy Backup can save any or all these libraries automatically, providing dedicated plug-ins called "Windows Libraries" and "User Folders" for this task.

Windows libraries are dedicated subfolders in a local user folder located at "C:\Users" directory. It is a common attribute of Windows regardless of its edition, so it is no difference between, say, "Windows 7 backup libraries" and "Windows 8 backup libraries"; Handy Backup do it all with same plug-ins.
Note: User subfolders in Linux provide completely the same functionality as Windows libraries, but you can access it primarily through "Computer" plug-in, due to Linux filesystem structure.
Handy Backup allows accessing Windows libraries through "Computer" and "Windows Libraries" plug-ins, as well as through some plug-ins in the "User Folders" group. If you choose no file encryption, then any of these plug-ins copies content of Windows backup libraries without changing file formats.
Due to internal scheduler, you can set up both starting time and repeating period for regular Windows libraries backup. In addition, you have a full set of backup automation tools, including incremental, differential and mixed backup, keeping versions of the same dataset, running other software etc.
With Handy Backup, you can save your Windows backup libraries to almost any modern storage type, including local drives, external USB disks, network folders, NAS units, S3 and WebDAV clouds of any types, FTP, SFTP and FTPS server, and to popular clouds such as Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox.
To create an automatic task for backing up Windows libraries, please follow the next instruction.
Some common Windows libraries, including documents, videos, photos and music, as well as a desktop content, are available as user folders. There are separate plug-ins in the User Folders group for accessing these libraries. Choose appropriate plug-ins in this group, as described above.
Tip! For some purposes, you can also use the Computer plug-in to get access to Windows libraries as to common folders. This is the same procedure as described above, with an exception of seeking and selecting appropriate folders and content manually from the Computer plug-in file structure.
