Bootable System Backup to Restore PC

Recovery Drive

Our software is equipped with a Disaster Recovery module which lets you create a bootable backup drive and use it to restore your PC after a crash. It has multiple first-aid functions and is fully compatible with backups made in Windows. Please contact us to obtain a copy of a Disaster Recovery utility.

Hard Disk Cloning

HDD Cloning

Backing up your HDD and restoring it to a different device is an easy way to clone all the information on your hard drive. You can clone your disk either when you running the program under Windows or when you installing a system on some PC from a bootable recovery drive.

Note! You must have a legal right to re-install a bootable backup image to other machine! For bootable backup Linux images, this is often not an issue, but when you use Handy Backup as Windows bootable backup software, beware the consequences for illegal re-installation or copying!

"Hot" Computer Backup

Computer Backup

Unlike other bootable backup software, the program allows you backing up system drive without stopping Windows. Complete computer backup can be performed in a “hot” mode (e.g., making a bootable backup Windows without a reboot), and does not interfere with your work at all.

Using Bootable Backup and Recovery Drive

It is highly recommended to create at least one bootable backup Windows drive, because if your primary system crashes, you will not be able to launch the system to restore your backups. Besides that, you can create a copy of your system using Handy Backup as the perfect bootable backup software, just for a case.

Featured GUI

The Disaster Recovery is the bootable USB backup tool. Use some scratch flash drive or external HDD/SSD to backup bootable USB to ISO by using almost the same task-based engine as in “basic” Handy Backup! Disaster Recovery governs all operations via the GUI based on modern Slax 9 Linux.

Note: Slax 9 supports almost all modern hardware, especially a full list of video drivers and Wi-Fi cards, for making your job smooth and comfortable!
