Handy Backup doesnt start with the error "Initialization failed. Reason: Failed to create program log"'

This happens, when Handy Backup can′t get access to the tasks and log files. Please find the Handy Backup Application Data folder (Start -> Run %APPDATA%/Novosoft Handy Backup) and make sure that none of its subfolders doesn′t have the “Read-only” attribute.
