Synchronizing or Making a Mirror: The Two Types of a Copy Program

All data plug-ins in Handy Backup copy software are divided by two types:

  • Storage plug-ins, allowing direct application of file copy software for moving files;
  • Data source plug-ins, allowing only backup and restore actions, not synchronization

If you want to copy or mirror a file governed by a data source plug-in, e.g. a database, then firstly make a copy of it in a “backup” task, and then set up a restore task to another place governed by the same plug-in. This way, you can use Handy Backup as fast file copy software for databases or websites!

Why Handy Backup?

Best file copy software

Compared with even best file copy software that serves for this purpose only, Handy Backup provides a lot of flexibility and versatility for any task that you can imagine! You can use it not only as copy file utility but also for purposes of dispatching, mirroring, data protecting and for many other goals.

Older versions of Handy Backup can also work as best CD/DVD or Blu-Ray copy software ever created, but optical drives are obsolete now, and we recommend to not relying to these types of media. Still, you can download and use Handy Backup as CD/DVD copy file utility.

Note: This general advantage can be also a single flaw, as you cannot utilize Handy Backup for too specific purposes such as copy editor software.
