Handy Backup 3.9 Help : Basics

Why do I need Handy Backup 3.9?


That is why thousands of people worldwide have chosen to use Handy Backup.

Handy Backup keeps your valuable data safe from irreparable loss or damage

According to statistics, dozens of gigabytes of data are being lost or damaged every single day. Accidents, virus attacks, power problems – there are thousands of possible reasons for loss or damage of vital information stored on your computer. In order to be protected from unexpected loss of important data people backup their files. However, if you have a single computer with only one hard disk, making backup to the same disk does not provide the required safety - in case of disk crash all data will be lost including backup copies. Handy Backup 3.9 enables you to keep all your backup copies on another computer, your local (LAN) network or a remote FTP server. You can also backup to your CD-RW device.

With Handy Backup you do not need to worry about performing manual backups

Handy Backup 3.9 has a powerful and flexible scheduler enabling its users to perform backups and restorations automatically, at the time specified by you. Once you’ve performed an initial setup, Handy Backup 3.9 will do all the rest for you.

Many office environments require you to copy files to a network server or a network storage so that the files will get backed up. Many people forget to copy files from their local machine to a server or a network storage. Handy Backup 3.9 can automatically do this work for you.

Handy Backup allows you to have a peace of mind

Should it be a virus attack, corrupted file, a hard disk crash or any natural disaster – you’ll always have a backup copy of your important data, and hence, a peace of mind.

You can also use Handy Backup for the following tasks:

  • Handy Backup allows you to copy files between work and home computers automatically, without necessity to use any storage media. You can modify files on your work computer and they will be synchronized automatically with the home computer.

  • Keep your laptop synchronized with the desktop. With Handy Backup you can copy files between your laptop or notebook computer and your desktop computer keeping all important files updated on both systems.

  • If your data is located on a remote FTP server and you wish to keep the same data on your local machine, Handy Backup will create an identical copy of the data stored on the FTP. If data in one of these identical folders is changed, the program will make the folders identical any time you wish or automatically, at the selected time periods.

  • Handy Backup can also be used to copy files between servers to have synchronized information across the network.

  • If you periodically copy files from one computer to another, you know that if something goes wrong during the copying process you’ll have to start copying all over again. Using Handy Backup, once you set up source and destination locations, even if there is a problem, you won’t have to start copying from the beginning. Simply correct the problem and Handy Backup will copy only missed or changed files.

  • You can synchronize files on two computers, i.e. bring them to the same state. The newer version replaces the older one, and files missing on one machine will be added. Synchronization can work in one or both directions. This is useful e.g. between a notebook and a desktop PC or among network computers.
