Handy Backup Professional Editor's Review

With average computer users dealing with ever increasing amounts of data, it makes sense to invest in a data backup application for safeguarding the data. It can include applications, media content, images and documents of various types. While manual backing up on optical media or external drive is an option, it would be nice if you have a capable third party tool that can automate and schedule the task. One such capable and inexpensive backup application is Novosoft Handy Backup. Available in a standard and Pro version, the app makes data backup and restoration a breeze for Windows users.

Novosoft Handy Backup Pro can be used on computers equipped with Windows XP SP3 and alter editions. Installing the app is simple and gets done fast.

The app offers plenty of backup options that will suit needs of beginners to advanced users without many issues. It lets you back up data on a wide range of mediums including DVDs and network drives, along with external hard drives. There are a few things that can be improved though. Backing up disk images is available only in Pro version but the program does not inform users about that in proper way. The app interface is simple and uncluttered.

When you run Novosoft Handy Backup Pro for the first time, it displays a wizard for running a general backup process. You can select parts of hard disk and files that need to be backed up. Then you have to select a destination for backup. It is possible to perform differential, incremental or full backup, as per your needs. If that is not enough, the app also offers data compression and 128-bit encryption features for backup. Heavy users will benefit from its scheduler that lets them schedule backup jobs, daily, weekly or other ways. One nice thing is that the app allows you to take back up of files that are open and being used. Password protection is also included, a boon for security conscious users.

Novosoft Handy Backup Pro is no slouch and it can backup lots of data quite fast, which makes it ideal for users who multitask. As it is, no one wants an app to hog resources in backup job while he is running other apps in background. However, the app is not much of a resource hog either. There are some small glitches that may irk advanced users and make them consider popular alternatives such as Acronis True Image. The data zipping feature is not always consistent and produced zip files tend to be erroneous at times. Another area where the app loses out to category rivals is the option to back up data to FTPS and SFTPs.

Just like its extensive data backup options, Novosoft Handy Backup Pro comes with wide customization options for restoration of backed up data. Scheduled restoration and partial restoration are possible with the app. The app informs you of backup job success or errors through email after the process is run.

Novosoft offers various means to help out users who run into problems while using Handy Backup Pro. You can opt for telephone and email based support. Besides, there are usual FAQs and user guide.

Positive Points:
- Adequate backup and restoration customization options.
- Backup can be done on various media.
- Data encryption and password protection for security.
- Data compression is possible.

Negative Points:
- Data compression is a hit or miss thing.
- Backup to FTPs not supported.

Conclusion:
Novosoft Handy Backup Pro is a capable and affordable data backup application that can cater to needs of various types of PC users. The software has an intuitive interface and inclusion of wizards ease out things for beginners. However, advanced users can customize backup jobs if they wish so. Same can be said about restoration tasks. The app does nearly everything well and does not take much time even for large backups. It has some drawbacks that thwart its prospects of becoming the category leading contender though. It does not support backing up data to FTPs. The bundled data compression feature works rather inconsistently which can irk some users. If you can put up with such glitches, there is no reason not to try out the app.
