Updating from Earlier Versions

Handy Backup is a live product that is regularly updated. We add new features, fix bugs, improve performance, introduce GUI optimizations and make other changes, releasing updates every 1-2 months. You can always get the latest version from the product website:


At present, all updates need to be made manually. To do it, follow these steps:

  1. Check that there is a new version available on the website.
  2. Uninstall an old version.
  3. Download and install the new version.

All settings and tasks will remain unchanged.

  1. If you are using the Network or Server Network edition, carefully check if there are any special update instructions. We do our best to maintain backward compatibility, but in rare cases you may need to reinstall Workstations, so they can work with the latest Server version.

Updating from Version 6

Since version 6, the software has undergone a major upgrade, and there is no way to transfer or convert tasks between versions.

Recommended way of migrating from version 6 to version 7 is as follows:

  1. Download and install the latest version.
  2. Run two programs simultaneously.
  3. Open task properties in version 6, and create a similar task in version 7.
  4. Repeat step 3 for all tasks of the old version.

To learn more about creating tasks, please see Managing Data.
