Handy Backup is a very capable solution for Microsoft OneDrive backup. It operates directly with the OneDrive cloud, allowing daily using all its advantages (such as incremental OneDrive backup to NAS or to a network drive) in a single automatic, user-friendly and technically equipped program.
Built-in OneDrive functions for sharing documents are somehow limited. Handy Backup allows users to upload and download files online as frequently as they need, making a perfectly linked environment for synchronizing online and offline operations for working with OneDrive.
Some software solutions developed by Microsoft are prone to different malware and hack attacks. Handy Backup contains the built-in encryption tool, which is capable to protect your data either when transferring dataset online or when storing it in an OneDrive.
Unless you encrypt your information, you can always browse, view, modify or share any data stored to OneDrive with Handy Backup directly in a cloud, because Handy Backup preserves native data formats when creates a backup dataset. Use your OneDrive backups without a need for restoring!
With Handy Backup, you can choose any destination to OneDrive backup, from local “My Documents” folder to FTP server to some remote vault. You can even backup OneDrive to Google Drive or to some other cloud (such as Dropbox, OwnCloud, Amazon S3) for guaranteeing safekeeping your information.
Compared to most OneDrive backup software solutions, including a built-in Windows OneDrive backup tool, Handy backup allows saving different backups to different folders and other target destinations, even for a same OneDrive account. You can store databases in one folder, disk images to another, etc.
The answer is “when you want to do it”. Handy Backup allows some options to start your backup to OneDrive Windows software task: manually when you want, at an exact time, repeating from minutes to months, by user logon/logoff to a system or by plugging a task-related external USB drive into your PC.
To create a task for automatic backup files to OneDrive, please use the dedicated OneDrive plug-in. Please follow the next brief instruction to set up an OneDrive automatic backup task:
Note: Before leaving the first step of task creation, please decide if you want to use all options for OneDrive backup or only a basic set of functions. According to your decision, you can click onto “Advanced mode” option on Step 1 or skip it.
Attention: Be sure that your OneDrive account size has enough storage capacity to save your backups. For example, you can require much more than a basic storage capacity of 5-15 Gb to make a hard drive backup or to save a database content to OneDrive!
Your OneDrive backup task is ready for executing. Start it manually at any time you will want, or wait for a scheduled period or event to run it automatically. You can also create tasks using OneDrive as backup source, with selecting and configuring OneDrive access at the Step 2 instead of the Step 3.
To perform backup of OneDrive for Business, Handy Backup contains a separate plug-in with the same name. This plug-in can backup OneDrive for Business data, as well as restore these data by just the same way as the standard OneDrive plug-in.
OneDrive for Business backup and restore uses another API than the standard OneDrive when accessing a cloud. It provides some extra protection measures, allowing backup OneDrive for Business data by a bit more secured way than user-level backup to OneDrive.
OneDrive for Business backup and recovery functions are available for all Handy Backup solutions except the simplest Standard edition, out of the box. For the Standard solution, you can purchase OneDrive for Business backup/restore tool as an additional plug-in, or as a part of a bundle.
"I use Handy Backup with my OneDrive account for a couple of months, and I have nice times because of freeing myself from any solicitude about cloud backup! It is very convenient, and it allows me making a whole bunch of backup versions on my cloud, so I can always restore my project just from that state what I need now!"

Despite OneDrive is not a single-purposed backup solution, it can serve as good storage for some automatic OneDrive backup software solutions. In addition, some options such as camera roll (automatic backup to OneDrive with your tablet or laptop camera), automatic upload of some music from your phone and other functions are available with the specialized OneDrive app. However, none of these functions can replace Handy Backup.
