Key Features of MS Access Database Backup
Handy Backup provides a set of specialized and generic features to backup Access database automatically, allowing creating just any copying strategy the user want to apply.
Hot Backup Database in Access
Handy Backup allows you backing up the database without stopping it. There is no need to close the program (so there are no disconnections). Handy Backup allows not stopping working during backup. It is a generic feature of Handy Backup to backup a database of any type.
Preserving Original Database Format in a Copy
As long as you will not choose compression or encryption options, Handy Backup saves copies of all your data, including MS Access databases, in original formats. This can be useful for browsing or changing databases just in backups, without a restoration, for manual copying or cloning data.
Compress and Encrypt Options for MS Access Database Backup
Data compression allows reducing the size of the backup. If you need better protection for your backup files because of security reasons, you can also choose “Encrypt the backup” option, to apply a modified 128-bit BlowFish algorithm, which will provide strong protection for your data.
Automatic Backup Scheduling
You can back up Access database in a fully automated mode, selecting an interval for repeated backups (every day, workdays or any other period from months to minutes for automatic backups). If you are an active database user, you can set up your own convenient interval to repeat the backup procedure.
Various Backup Methods
In addition to the full backup, incremental, differential and mixed backup options are also available. These types of backups are saving only changes between new and backup files. Therefore, these techniques process much less data, saving storage space and reducing Access database backup time.
