Backup Software / Business User Reviews and Testimonials
"Over the years, I have utilized Handy-Backup to transfer data from a remote air quality monitoring station to on-site external back-up drives, to our central database via FTP, and to local, state, and federal FTP servers on an hourly basis. This data provides real-time air quality information to the residents of our community, state, and nation to better protect their health and inform decision-makers about current conditions.
I have promoted Handy Backup to many of my colleagues and across our industry. The USEPA has taken notice of your product because of my highlighting its utility to our programs. I have always been impressed with its unfailing devotion to getting data to the right place on time for years on end."
"I have recently changed laptops which involved an upgrade to Windows 10 and was looking for a replacement for some old backup software for which I could no longer get a licence key.
I searched around and tried a few different products but chose Handy Backup for the following reasons:
The ability to have a free trial period, nice interface, very easy to use, I have several work bases and have a backup drive at each location and Handy Backup allows me to both back up my files and synchronise to a number of portable drives in native file format.
The scheduling - this was a must for me as I want these backups to happen automatically in the background several times per day. I found I could only schedule a backup set once per day but created several copies of the same backup set that initiate at different times of the day.
Overall I’m very happy with my choice of Handy Backup."
Alistair G.R. Poole, NSG GROUP
"I want to use it to backup the files from my computer to a server owned by my internet service provider, for avoiding ransomware and other similar eventual attacks.
I chosen Handy Backup because I am blind and the other backup applications/services I tried are not accessible for the blind, but require using a mouse."
Octavian, Handy Backup Business User
"As the owner of a computer service company, I am constantly in need of backup solutions for our clients. I have installed Handy Backup hundreds of times over the last several years with the utmost of confidence that the program works 100% of time and is so user friendly that even our novice customers are able to work with it successfully. Awesome software that outperforms its claims!"
Roy Parker, Handy Backup Business User
"Earlier we have been using a different corporate backup solution. The reason Handy Backup is better is because I can rely on it to run my backup jobs every night. I had initially installed Handy Backup to serve as a backup to our previous corporate solution, but as the old solution started to fail more often, I found that a combination of Windows Backup and Handy Backup Network Server was much more reliable."
Jason Helms, Handy Backup Business User
"You all have a great program. It has worked flawlessly for me and I’ve backed up many gigabytes of data across my network. It’s very easy to use..."
Richard Howard, Handy Backup Client
"I’ve tried during one month. it seems a very good backup software. Backup functions are good, even better than others, but what makes it special is the synchronize feature. I appreciate it very much!"
Toni Valls, Producer, Ateva Comunicación, Spain

Tony Bachman, Handy Backup Business User
"I have a great deal of important information on my computer - written papers, historical information, scripts, texts, essays, photos, etc - from the academic world. I fear losing it very much, much more than the computer itself. I have been concerned to find the right software for some time. The program I was looking for had to be simple, easy to use, and above all give me confidence that my data really was backed up. I tried a good number of programs, but Handy Backup was the first to give me a real sense of confidence and a quiet mind."
Larry, Handy Backup Business User

"I am a computer support business and will be using the licences on 3 different sites for backup purposes. As well as file backups I will be doing disk images both of which I will FTP to a NAS or offsite server. I am largely doing this because of ransomware viruses which have hit several of our clients. I have been using Handy Backup for over 10 years but not the professional version until now. I will also be purchasing the server version for some of our clients."
