Handy Backup - Backups Made Easy

Review: Handy Backup
Version: 4.0 Build Sept 2nd 2004
Reviewer: Womble

Positives and Negatives of Handy Backup:


  • Retailing at $30 it is a very powerful program for the cost
  • Easy to use and understand
  • Various mediums available to back up onto give a wide choice to the users
  • The automation of as many different Backup, Restore or Synchronize items as you require will be great for businesses
  • Very quick in most of the tests that I performed on the program
  • Help file is easy to read and understand. It comes complete with pictures and guides for newcomers which will make using the program easy
  • No DVD Support. With the increase of DVD burners around, this is a must for the next release
  • No CD option in the Synchronize mode. I would have felt that with either multi-session CDR’s or CDRW’s, this is an option that could have been implemented
  • The possible deletion of files in Synchronize mode would be a worry if you inadvertently put your files in the wrong directory or moved it straight to the backup folder

Next we'll take a look at my conclustions for this program...
