How to Install Plug-ins
Note: XML-based plug-ins are temporarily unavailable in the latest version, Handy Backup 8.4.0 (released on June 30, 2022). We are planning to add this feature in several weeks - and if you need it right now, we recommend that you use version 6.9.7 instead.
You can add plug-ins to Handy Backup either through Settings -> Plugins, or by downloading them manually and adding to the XmlPlugins in the Handy Backup installation folder.
Download the plug-in or plug-ins you need from this web site. Save downloaded files in ZIP format on your computer, and then extract the archive to the following folder: Program Files/Novosoft/HandyBackup/XmlPlugins.
To check the success of your plug-in installation, do the following:
