Backup Software / Features / Disk Recovery Software
Hard disk recovery software allows to recover or to clone a hard disk on a "physical" or "logical" level, as a disk image, instead of copying file content. Handy Backup is a perfect utility to make hard disk restore, allowing automating and optimizing this operation either itself or by an external utility.

The Disaster Recovery utility, a part of Handy Backup software, is a platform-independent solution for restoring images of any OS, including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X. It is USB-based, external hard disk recovery software, allowing booting from a rescue drive and restoring a disk image.
Users can either recover non-primary drives (i.e. not a drive from which a copy of OS currently running loaded) locally for any edition of Handy Backup except the simplest Standard, or make disk recovery by a network (for network editions only) directly from a program, without a need for a disk recovery utility.
Handy Backup allows scheduling disk image snapshots, as well as marking backups with version numbers and time stamps. Therefore, you can take a particular version (e.g., the last stable backup) for data recovery of hard disk content, relying to version data in backup folder names.
This short instruction will teach you how to make complete image recovery. You can use either a disk cloning plug-in (Disk Image or System Recovery), or the Disaster Recovery utility to make hard disk recovery from scratch.
Version 8.2.3, built on March 29, 2021 . 111 MB Backup Software from Novosoft LLC. 89 USD per license.
The Professional edition is a choice of IT experts, making hard disk restore from the program itself and also allowing using the Disaster Recovery utility as your trusted hard disk restore tool.
Use one of these plug-ins to create a recovery image. Then you need to make a new recovery task and use the same plug-in to restore disk image to its original or new location (except tasks requiring hard disk recovery for a main system drive).
Note: The System Recovery plug-in creates an image of a whole drive, with all partitions, in a comprehensible, readable and usable VHD format. Therefore, it is a preferable plug-in for hard disk backup and subsequent recovery, unless you want to make just a system partition backup.
To imply hard disk recovery for any secondary drive (i.e., not for a system drive containing a copy of Windows running now), please follow the next instruction:
Note: Use the “Change Location” dialog when you need hard disk recovery software to clone or to move an original image to another place.
The next video will teach you how to use the Disaster Recovery. The Disaster Recovery software tool is completely free for all users of Professional, Small Business and Server Network editions of Handy Backup! It is a part of a whole solution, requiring no additional purchasing or downloading.
