Quick Start

In this chapter you can find quick start instructions on creating your first Handy Backup tasks. Task is a set of instructions that need to be followed to protect your data. There are three type of tasks:

  • Backup task copies data to a safe place, with optional compression, encryption and versioning.
  • Restore task is used to recover data from backups to original location, with automatic decompression, decryption, etc.
  • Synchronize task is used to keep two folders in sync, without any advanced options.

Each task can be run once, or scheduled to take place automatically.

First Start

When you start the program for the first time, it opens a Startup Wizard (in a Standalone edition), or a New Task Wizard (in Server edition). The Wizards help you create your first tasks. See next chapters for more details.
