Handy Backup, by Novosoft, Inc., 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 Handy Backup 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.

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 ... A nice interface and complete set of options make this one of the best backup utilities we've seen.
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 ... This program is definitely worth the $30 and it even has plugins available for an extra cost that will backup your Outlook, ICQ, and Registry files!
