With Handy Backup, you can make cloud backup of NAS and FTP content, databases, virtual machines, files, folders and special data types. You can even make cloud backup hard drive images, to protect your system from ransomware or to use an image stored in cloud backup with Disaster Recovery utility later.
You can schedule start of any task using a remote backup utility to some exact time, with a preset interval of repeating from a minute to a couple of months, as well as link a task with some system event, such as user logon/logoff or plugging a task-related USB data device into a computer.
Each cloud backup tool, as well as any data or storage plug-in available, fully automates operations of backup and recovery with a selected cloud storage, including searching data, establishing connections, tuning up data flow and securing the information.
Handy Backup allows such things as taking partition backups, (incremental, differential and mixed), saving many versions of datasets, making time stamps on backup folder names, encrypting and compressing the information, and running software before and after a task.
To utilize cloud backup solutions, Handy Backup provides some storage plug-ins, dedicated for establishing connections and exchanging data with cloud software tools listed above. We are adding new cloud backup services constantly, so we recommend updating your Handy Backup regularly!
This is the simplest instruction about how to use cloud backup solutions with Handy Backup. Here, we show how to utilize OneDrive, but you can choose any cloud based backup services instead, just by selecting and configuring an appropriate plug-in.
Note: If you do not have a connection to selected cloud, then click “Create a connection…” and enter your login data for a cloud account. This operation will open a browser window with Web interface for a selected cloud, so enter your connection data and then allow using Handy Backup for cloud storage.
You can also save data from a cloud. For this, select a plug-in on Step 2, in the “Cloud” group. Choose an existing connection or create a new as described before, and then select data from your account to make, for example, an automatic cloud backup for NAS enterprise storage.
These are some additional options for cloud backup business tasks. Among these options are utilizing business-level storage solutions (cloud backup OneDrive for Business, Box, Amazon S3, Alibaba or other bucket-based protected storage clouds), making cloud backup for Office 365 documents via WebDAV and so on.
Note: Cloud backup for Office 365 is often strongly linked to OneDrive, and, in some cases, other dedicated clouds. Please read some cloud backup reviews and software instructions before making a decision how to store your cloud backup enterprise data with this product line from Microsoft!
