Advantages of Automatic Network Backup

Regular and Scheduled Job

With a network backup software solution, you cannot forget about taking regular backups! Handy Backup allows saving your network data at a precisely defined time, with an interval from months to one minute, or by some event such as user logon, or when you are placing a USB storage into a PC.

Automatic Network Backup

Automated Access to Any Data

The well-developed plug-in system of Handy Backup allows you taking snapshots from any data you can imagine in automatic mode. A database? No problem. A virtual machine or an array of these machines? Yes, got it! A group of files selected by a name mask? OK. Any data is eligible for auto network backup!

A Variety of Storages for Network Backup

Different Data Destinations

Best network backup software can store taken backups onto as many vault types as possible. For example, Handy Backup can store data to local and USB drives, to NAS units, common and protected FTP storages, network drives and folders, as well as cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

Other Principal Features of Handy Backup

Besides the common principles of network backup described above, Handy Backup has some other advantages and key options to make it an effective solution to backup network data:

  • Partial backup (incremental, differential and mixed full/differential backup options);
  • Encrypting and/or compressing data, or keeping the information unchanged in backups;
  • Running other software before and/or after a backup task, to make a chain of data workflow;
  • Efficient auto restoring to an original place, or to a new location (allowing cloning data!);
  • Detailed reporting and informing users about task results (including emailing reports).

Caveat! Do not select an entire domain such as “WORKGROUP” or “Microsoft Network Service” for backing up! The program can (and will) backup all the resources on domain that you mark, which will almost every time ends up with a data redundancy and storage overflow!

Network editions of Handy Backup support the two types of remote computers: workstations and servers.

  • Workstations contain user-level data such as files, folders, libraries and disk images, as well as local databases or, sometimes, FTP servers. A Workstation Network Agent, connecting a workstation to a main management panel, is a feature for both network backup solutions.
