Other Advantages of Computer Data Backup Software

Task Scheduling

You can make data backup and recovery automatically at an exactly defined time and with an exact interval from minutes to months, as well as triggering a data backup task by some system event such as user logon/logoff. You can also automatically re-run missed tasks.

Automatic Data Backup

Silent Data Backup

Handy Backup can make no distractions during backup your data if you run it as Windows service. In this mode, the program does not show an interface window and executes pre-defined tasks by schedule. You can also set up an email notification to be sure about task activities.

Data Encryption and Compression Backup

Data Encryption and Compression

Handy Backup provides internal tools for compressing all data backup content into a single or separate ZIP files, and a modified BlowFish encryption option. In addition, it supports different methods of traffic encryption such as SSL/TLS for backup data offsite (e.g. email backup).

Running Other Software Before and After a Task

Finally, you can run a batch file or some external utility either before or after a task, or before and after it. This option is very useful for making a data chain workflow, for stopping some data process to take cold backup (by default, handy Backup almost always makes hot data backup), and so on.

Sample Data Backup Methods: Saving Your Data to Local Drive

In this example, we will use the "Computer" plug-in for utilizing Handy Backup as data backup software. It can store any data to a local drive or to an external USB disk. Here we will show a simplest data backup and recovery method, utilizing a local drive C: as storage. Please follow the instruction:

Native Storage Format of Data Backup

Native Data Format of Backup

Handy Backup always tries to preserve the original data format when it stores data copies. Therefore, you can use most data backup files directly from a copy, for browsing, moving, viewing, deleting the files, or even for restoring a file manually without a full auto recovery task.

For some complex data, such as disk images or SQL databases, there are no native formats available. Instead, Handy Backup implements other comprehensible formats, e.g., VHD files for drive images, SQL command sequences (dump files) for MySQL and so on.
