Handy Backup Pro is a speedy, effective and comprehensible utility capable for backing up data from personal computers including home, office and business-level workstations. It is designed for users who need to back up not only files, but also pro-level data such as databases, websites or entire system images.
Key Features of the Solution
Handy Backup Professional provides some options highly required for experts and advanced users.
System Backup and Recovery
The Professional edition can save an image of any drive as a VHD file. Users can restore this image later (including the possibility of creating a bootable device), or attach this VHD file as a virtual drive and browse its content, or even run it as a complete image of a VirtualBox machine.
Backup to All Popular Clouds
Professional edition is capable to save copies of data to all popular clouds such as Dropbox, Amazon S3, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, Backblaze and other. You can use backup information without restoration, as Handy Backup saves data in native format, allowing using this data directly from cloud.
Secured Server Connections
In the Professional edition, not only FTP servers are supported but also the protected FTP exchanging protocols, SFTP and FTPS. These features allow connecting with any type of FTP servers, for backing up such an information as website static content and secured FTP data.
