Generally, desktop backup may refer to two areas of computing:

  • Windows desktop backup: copy of a background area in Windows which is located behind all windows and usually contains most important and frequently used documents and shortcuts.
  • Backup of a desktop computer: copy of data of a personal computer which is designed for regular use at a single location (i.e. not a notebook backup or a mobile laptop backup).

Windows Desktop Backup

If your Desktop is used for easy access and management of computer programs and documents, and you want to simply backup data intended for regular use, then Handy Backup is the right solution for you. Handy Backup solves the question of protecting its data from accident deletion or loss through an integrated preset called Desktop Backup.
