Folder Backup Software

Backup Storage

Folders are containers within a file system that allow organizing all documents, pictures, music and all other computer files we use daily.

While there is no need in explaining how powerful folders are in terms of data storage and management, it is important to understand fundamental difference between file backup and folder backup.

Folder backup assumes that each execution of a task will back up the entire folder with all modifications of its contents. Disk space required for folder backup directly depends on your activities and how frequently you add new files to the selected folder.

Backup tasks for saving a set of specific files, on the other hand, are static and limited by their number, which makes the drive space required for them more or less predictable.

Folder Backup Software

Handy Backup is a nifty software that allows you to back up folders and files automatically, on a specified schedule. You can create backup tasks using both files-based and folder-based approach:

Windows Folders Backup

For each PC user, Windows provides personal folders, such as Documents (or My Documents) or Desktop. Handy Backup provides a number of explicit presets that allow adding them to backup tasks with a single click:

  • Desktop Backup. You don’t need to know where the Desktop folder is physically located on your HDD. Through the use of the Desktop Backup function you can back up all folders, files and shortcuts of your Windows desktop.
  • My Documents Backup. Flexible file mask filtering system enables you to safeguard all music, photos, or back up My Documents, Excel spreadsheets and other data, separately.

FTP Folder Backup

Handy Backup comes with an integrated FTP-client that lets you both store backups to FTP servers and back up data from remote FTP folders. Owing to this function you can, for instance, back up website that you can access via FTP. Learn more about backing up from FTP.

Folder Backup Options

To make folder backups most convenient and effective, Handy Backup provides a number of options:

  • Incremental and differential backup. Incremental backup is an effective approach to data copying, where each new execution of the task backs up only new and modified files, greatly increasing the speed. Differential backup does the same, but relatively to the Full backup.
  • Compression. Compression allows reducing space occupied by backups on HDD. Handy Backup supports 10 levels of compression (varying in ratio and speed) and also offers a choice between creation of a single ZIP backup file and separate archives for each item in the task.
  • Folder backup automation. Tasks can be performed completely automatically, and for each task you can set up its individual schedule. Learn more about automatic backup software.
  • Wide range of storage options. You can back up folders locally, store backups to USB, FireWire, Flash and other external drives, burn copies to optical discs (back up to DVD, CD, Blu-ray discs), or copy backups to networked computers (FTP backup, SFTP and other network storage).
