How to Recover Hard Disk Data Using Handy Backup?

This short instruction will teach you how to make disk recovery. You can use either a disk cloning plug-in (Disk Image or System Recovery), or the Disaster Recovery utility to make disk restore from scratch.

Specify the Backup Set for Disk Recovery Software
  • The Disk Image plug-in will make a binary image of hard disk recovery drive.
  • The System Recovery plug-in will create a usable, readable VHD disk recovery image.
  • The Disaster Recovery utility will recover a hard drive from an image made either by Disk Image and System Recovery, or take an image by itself to work as a disk recovery utility.

How to Make Hard Disk Recovery with Disk Image or System Recovery Plug-in?

Use one of these plug-ins to create an image for hard disk recovery. 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). Follow the next instruction:

  1. Create a new recovery task, as described in the User Manual.
  2. Select a hard disk recovery image file on the Step 2.
  3. Select a physical drive to recover hard disk data.

  1. Continue creating a recovery task step by step, as described in the User Manual.

Advantages of Handy Backup as Disk Recovery Utility

Multi-Platform Hard Disk Recovery

The Disaster Recovery utility, a part of Handy Backup software, is a platform-independent solution for hard disk recovery of any OS type, 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.

Recover Hard Disk Data Locally or by a Network

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.
