Managing HBDrive Account
HBDrive is a distributed storage service developed and maintained by our company. It is closely integrated with Handy Backup which has a special Online Backup plug-in.
This chapter describes how to manage data backed up to HBDrive account. To learn about HBDrive and how to create an account, please refer to the previous chapter HBDrive (Online Storage Service).
To manage your HBDrive account (review status, browse and download files, etc.), follow these steps:
The application connects to HBDrive and displays data in your account.
Using HBDrive File Browser
After logging into your account, you can browse and download files. The user interface consists of four main elements: Toolbar, Navigation Bar, Navigation & Details Pane, File Browser. You can learn about them below.
Toolbar contains six buttons that are used to customize HBDrive interface and manage data.
If you are not logged in, the toolbar replaces File Browser controls with a Log in button that opens authorization dialog.
The Navigation Bar displays your current position in the File Browser and lets you quickly navigate in the HBDrive file system.
Navigation & Details Pane
The Navigation & Details Pane contains two inner panes: Folders and Details.
In the Folders pane, you can navigate through HBDrive folders. Selecting a folder displays its contents in the File Browser.
The Details pane displays information about the folder selected in the Folders pane, or object (file or folder) selected in the File Browser. For files, it also displays file info and provides the Download command.
In the File Browser you can see all data that you have in your HBDrive account.
At present, the file browser supports only two commands: Download and Delete.

If you experience any problems with downloading large files, you can download them by parts. To do it, follow these steps:

To delete a file or a folder from HBDrive, select it in the File Browser, and then click the Delete button in the Toolbar.
