Installing Standalone Edition

The software is available in three Standalone editions: Standard, Professional and Small Server. The term “standalone” means that all components of the software are installed on one computer, and all data retrieval, processing and storage operations are handled by a single machine.


To install a standalone edition, follow these steps:

  1. On the Custom Setup step of the Setup Wizard, select Handy Backup (default option), and then click Next.
Installation: Custom Setup
  1. Select installation folder, and then click Next.
  2. Click Install to start the installation.
  3. If you have User Account Control enabled, then you will be prompted to confirm the installation. Click Yes.

  1. Click Finish.

The program will start from the user account under which you launched the installation. This means that you will be able to back up data of this user only. To learn more about user privileges and accessing computer data, please see the Workstation section of this manual.
