Can run as a service on Windows NT/2000/XP

Handy Backup Pro 1.1 supports a single-user mode when running as a service. It means that only a single user on a computer can initiate running Handy Backup Pro agent as a service. After you switch Handy Backup Pro 1.1 to service mode, you can import configurations of other users to the service configuration. The return action is also possible: make Handy Backup Pro running as a process. When the program is running as a service, Handy Backup Pro icon disappears from the system tray. Two new wizards - Switch to Service Wizard and Switch to Process Wizard are intended to help you switching between process and service modes.
