Advantages of Handy Backup as the PST Backup Tool

Schedule Your Tasks to Backup PST Files Automatically

You can schedule your task to backup PST file at any time that you want, with an exact starting point and repeating period from minutes to months, as well as mark a task to backup PST datasets by some system event (e.g., when you are inserting a task-related USB storage device into your PC slot).

Security Options and Measures

Besides an option to call for external encryption or security software before backup PST files, as well as using secured transferring protocols, Handy Backup provides a built-in encryption by 128-bit modified BlowFish, making it a highly secured PST backup tool.

Fast Incremental Backup

Fast Incremental Backup

To save time and storage space, you can also use partial backup techniques (i.e., incremental, differential and mixed backup for PST). Incremental backup is especially useful for PST files, as it allows recovering a particular state of mailbox content.

Advanced Settings for Efficient PST Backup

As Handy Backup allows both hot and cold backup PST file copying, switch the mail client state directly from a task by calling it as an external program. You can use internal compression and encryption to minimize size of PST backups and ensure backup PST security.

Hot PST Backup Tool

Another principal advantage of Handy Backup is its option to backup PST information without stopping the client from its work.
