Advantages of Handy Backup

For automatic computer backup, Handy Backup provides many advantages and features, e.g.:

  • Scheduling backup tasks: set up a period for starting a task, or start it with USB drive plugged;
  • “Hot” file backup: due to using Windows VSS service, you can back up opened files;
  • Many storage types: you can save your computer backups locally, by FTP, on clouds or NASes;
  • Different backup types: make full, incremental, differential or mixed backups;
  • Native backup formats: browse, change or restore backup components.
Scheduling backup

These and many other advantages, along with a reasonable price tag, modest system requirements and a great performance, make Handy Backup one of the best computer backup programs available.

The Best Way to Backup Computer

To find what you need from backups, determine firstly for which purpose you plan to back up your data. If you need to copy a whole drive or to migrate to another machine, you need a full backup. For making copies of your data or collections for security, use a partial backup.

Full Backup

Full Computer Backup

Save your computer hard drive (or a couple of drives) as virtual disk images. This method can backup computer information byte-to-byte, with all settings, components and data kept intact. Almost all editions of Handy Backup (excepting the Standard edition) can do this out of the box.

Online Backup

Online Computer Backup

You can modify the previous method for using it online. To do it, you will need a network-oriented edition of Handy Backup and a local network connection. Just install a Network Agent on a target computer, and then save all its data online using the remote Management Panel.

Backup Your Computer Partially

Another method of computer backup means defining and saving only crucial parts of the information, not all the machine as a whole. For example, to migrate from one Windows-based machine to another, you must only backup computer files and libraries, not a system or a whole drive content.

Saving Libraries and User Folders

Most users often store their vital data into user folders and Windows libraries. Therefore, if you looking for a best way to backup computer, you can just save your libraries and user folder content to some secure place, restoring these data when you need it.

Saving Selected Files and Folders

You can also save any file(s) and/or folder(s) located on your computer. Use file filters with name masks and wildcards like “*” to automatically find files you need. Alternatively, you can just browse your filesystem and pick data you feel appropriate to back up.

Saving Registry and Applications

The last way of partial backup is to save data from a particular application. For example, Handy Backup can automatically backup MS Outlook data, including mails, contacts and events. In addition, you can create a copy of Windows registry, containing data from many applications.

All operations run in a very facile and vivid way, and whenever you need to restore your backups, you can do it with a single mouse click!
