Like flossing, backing up data is something most people know they should do but don’t--even though myriad computer problems can deprive you of years of work, e-mail, family photos, and more. Handy Backup packages this all-too-technical-sounding task into a very nice interface, which can best be described as friendly without being patronizing ...

Handy Backup, by Novosoft, is a nicely engineered piece of software. Its designed to backup all of your important data and it does that job very well. The program has a number of useful and also interesting features, like the use of plug-ins. I found the software to be very easy-to-use and feel that even novice users would do well with it. It can backup to drives on your network, your FTP site, as well as to CDs. And, it can span CDs so your backups aren’t limited. So, if you’ve been looking for a program for backing up your data, give Handy Backup a try! I think you’ll like it -- I did!

Handy Backup v3.9 [1.53mb] W9x/2k/XP $30 {Free trial available}

When it comes to files that need to be kept there’s no better way to keep them than to make a backup, and boy do I have the solution for you. Handy Backup will take any file or folder and do exactly what the title suggests, make a handy backup. But that’s not all folks, it comes with a plethora of nifty tools; think of this product as the Swiss-army knife of backups. It has Full CD-R/RW support and disk spanning, Integrated Zip Compression, a built in Scheduler, 128-bit Encryption, and it can even upload your backup via FTP. And all of this can be done through the Scheduler so you never have to make a mouse click! This program is definitely worth the $30 and it even has plugins available that will backup your Outlook, ICQ, and Registry files! [Sam]

 Smart Computing Magazine Review

Handy Backup is one of those rare utilities that delivers an outstanding feature set for a relatively low cost, and the 30-day fully functional trial version gives users plenty of time to test its power. The software supports CD-Rs and CD-RWs and has disc spanning to handle your larger backup jobs. It can compress files as they are backed up using the standard ZIP format and encrypt them, as well. Throw in a robust scheduler and an intuitive interface, and you end up with an outstanding value. For an extra fee, plug-ins are available that integrate the application with Outlook Express, Outlook and ICQ to automatically back up all of your important email and contacts, as well.
