Advanced Security

Serving as data replication tool, Handy Backup allows internal data and traffic encryption, using secured FTP and cloud storages, informing users about all program actions via emails or a GUI, as well as running missed tasks and starting other software (including security utilities) before or after a task.

How to Make Data Replication with Handy Backup?

These are the two variants of data replication: one for moving data to some storage, and another to saving a data copy onto another data source.

  • Storages: there are the clouds, FTP servers, NAS units, external and network drives and local disks to serve as storages. The primary feature of storage is its designation for saving data.
  • Data sources: despite that any storage can serve as data source in Handy Backup, all objects not designed for storing the raw information (e.g., a database or a virtual machine) is a source.

Data Replication to Storage

The way to do it when using Handy Backup as replication software is quite simple.

  1. Open Handy Backup. Create a new backup task with a button or a menu item.
  2. On the Step 1, select the backup task type.
  3. Move to the Step 2. Select here the data source to apply the task as a data replicator.
Select the data source for data replication
  1. On the Step 3, select storage to replicate the information.
Select storage to replicate the information
  1. On other steps, tune up your task (to schedule running, encrypt data and so on).
  2. Finally, give your task a name. That is all! Each time you will run a task, you will automatically process your data replication to selected storage.

Note: To make data replication between storage folders, you may use the synchronization task (make it on the Step 1, and just select storage folders on the Steps 2 and 3). This method simplifies data replication operations, but it also lacks some additional instruments of security and efficiency.

Using Handy Backup as Replication Software for Data Sources

Here, things are bit more complicated. Firstly, select storage (see above) to save a temporary copy of your information. Then create a backup task to save your source data to that storage. Next, create a new task and select the restoration task on the Step 1. Go to the Step 2 and follow the next steps:

  1. Open your storage on the Step 2, and in the backup folder, find a file backup.hbi.
  2. Select this file. Click "Next" and go to the Step 3.
  3. On this step, click onto the button "Change location".
Select the data source connection to replicate data
  1. Select the data source connection (or create a new one) to replicate data to it. Click OK.
  2. Continue creating a restoration task as described in the User Manual.

Note: You can automatically delete your temporary file copy after data replication by running a command after a task. You may also schedule replication software actions by running a backup task and a restore task after a few time needed to complete a backup part of this operation.
