Handy Backup Review

When it comes to data backup, most users are familiar with the traditional method: using a disc drive to copy all desired files. Unfortunately, this approach poses several problems. Discs are easy to damage while taking up valuable space on computers; additionally, most modern computers no longer feature optical drives – necessitating an alternative solution.

Handy Backup is an impressive application designed to provide high-quality, professional-grade data backup on both single computers and networks of PCs. It enables automatic back up of files, databases and disk images on a regular basis; furthermore it supports various external storage devices and runs as a service on NT-based systems.
