Version 8.2.0, built on 30 September 2020 110 MB
Very fast, very convenient, very easy to use; this is all about Handy Backup! The convenient graphical user interface allows you making a typical task to auto backup photos in just six clicks. The “My Pictures” plug-in helps you to backup pictures from your default user folder with graphic information.
Unless you use data encryption, Handy Backup will always take photo backups in native data formats, i.e., it preserves original JPEG or GIF files on a copy that it stores to photo backup drive. Therefore, you can browse, use or even modify your photos from backup directly without recovery!
You can also schedule your task to backup pictures repeatedly from a single minute to a couple of months. If you have no need to backup all photos time by time, use partial backup (incremental, differential or mixed). And you can do many other things, such as time-stamping your photo backup!
Besides the traditional way of storing photo backup to a local disk or to an external USB drive, you can also backup pictures to cloud (S3- or WebDAV-driven cloud, OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive or other), or backup all photos to some network resource such as NAS, shared folder or FTP server.
Tip: Nowadays, the best photo backup cloud solutions are big services such as Google Drive, where you have a full set of tools to modify and share your pictures!
"I always backup photos to OneDrive with Handy Backup instead of a built-in sync. It is great, with its automation and scheduling functions! This software helps me securing my photo backup collection on both a cloud and an external USB media drive."
Justin O’Hare, a still-life photographer

It′s also very flexible."
