Customers about Handy Backup


I’ve been using Handy Backup for years, and I like this software because it allows me to backup to native file format, and if I want to secure certain files and folder backups, I can compress and encrypt them easily. In my experience the program was also very stable compared to the others I tested.


I like Handy Backup because it has a simple interface and it is easy to recover individual files from the backup set.
